About The Event
About the Korean K9 Rescue:
We are a passionate and dedicated group of volunteers in New York City. We work in partnership with local and regional South Korean dog rescuers/activists and high-kill shelters. Many of our dogs come from the brutal dog meat trade and are also puppy mill survivors. These two billion dollar industries work hand in hand with each other. We bring them to the US for adoption because they have a very low chance of ever finding homes in their homeland because of the “stigma” associated with unwanted dogs.
We are also working to end the dog meat trade in Korea where over 2.5 million dogs a year are tortured and slaughtered for consumption because of the belief that tortured dog meat gives medicinal benefits. Our #BanDogMeat Movement is creating awareness and pressure on the South Korean government to put an end to this brutal trade.
