Update on Gwangju Dog Meat Farm shutdown 11/21

Update on Gwangju Dog Meat Farm shutdown:

Thank you so much to all of our supporters and donors who helped us raise $4,000! We have enough funds to save the dogs from this farm thanks to YOU ❤️ It’s never easy to even look at some of the photos we receive from our rescuers in Korea. They go to remote dog farms where the farmers get away with not following animal protection laws. It’s heartbreaking to see these dogs in this below freezing temperature enduring hardships, especially the new born pups. ❄️ After our rescue from this farm, we found that one of the brown puppies is injured with a torn/ missing leg. This puppy would have been dead in a matter of days if we did not intervene. The way these dogs are treated on the farm is cruel and inhumane. We will continue to try to shut these facilities down one by one. We are slowly making a difference, especially thanks to YOUR help. These precious dogs are so grateful, it’s like a Thanksgiving wish come true for all of them 🙏🏽

KK9R x Bruce Weber, The Last Magazine & more!

This past month has been a great one for us and being featured in the media! We hinted at it in a blog post earlier but we are finally able to post about what we have been up to!

Last month our pups had an exciting opportunity to shoot with legendary photographer #bruceweber for V Magazine (The Limited Edition Calendar 2018)! We are so grateful for this opportunity and our pups were treated like royalty! In Korea some call them 똥개 (shit dogs) because of being born on a dog meat farm. Now they are SUPERMODELS and we could not be more thankful to the compassion #Vmagazine and #Bruceweber has shown our rescue group! Featured here is our gorgeous Yuna, now adopted to wonderful pawrents in Brooklyn! Please get your copy of this 2018 Calendar because a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Korean K9 Rescue where we CAN make a difference together to change the stigma and show the world rescue dogs ROCK!

And if that weren’t exciting enough…

We also had the amazing opportunity to shoot with Gregg Sulkin and The Last Magazine!

Our alumi rescue dog’s Lumi (now Ernie), Carrot (now Kenzo) & Sugar (still Sugar) were photographed by #maxpapendieckwith actor #greggsulkin for #thelastmagazine article below last month! Thanks to everyone involved and for supporting KK9R!

Shut Down Gwangju Dog Meat Farm!

We love the passion NYC shares for our Korean dogs…but we must show the reality and why we do what we do.

Gwangju, Korea – Here we discovered terrified dogs awaiting their turn for torture first, then death. They are hung from a rope, beaten, electrocuted in a slow painful death. If you believe this is culture, then our rescue group is not for you. This is cruelty, not culture and the suffering must end. Our rescuers on the ground in Korea are citizens and do not believe in and will not allow this barbaric trade to go on! Let’s stand with our activist and rescuers in Korea and shut this dog meat farm down! Little by little brick by brick we can make a difference. This weekend we rescued 2 mom and 6 babies from this horrific dog meat farm in Gwangju, Korea and they will be coming to NYC for adoption! Their story will follow in the coming days. Please help us save ALL of these innocent gentle lives and donate to shut down Gwangju Dog Meat Farm!

We need your help to save the remaining dogs all 30 + many of them mommies and babies ~ please donate and help us shut it down!! The pups are scared and crying, its the first time they have been touched by human hands…

PLEASE DONATE HERE, ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TOWARDS BRINGING THESE DOGS TO NYC: https://www.youcaring.com/koreank9rescue-1009690

Korean Activists Protest Outside of Gupo Market

The 2018 Winter Olympic torch arrived in South Korea this week, reminding us that the event is less than 100 days away.

It has been speculated that the upcoming Olympics in Korea is the cause for the Moran Market, the largest dog meat market in Seoul, to close earlier this year. Is this a true step forward to ending the meat trade or will the dog meat sellers go underground and still continue the torture and slaughter? We are aware that this could be another temporary closing as we saw with other dog meat markets prior to the Olympics in Korea in 1988. Regardless, we need to take this as an opportunity to push for other dog meat markets to be shut down.

The Gupo Market is still operating and it is now the second largest dog meat market in Busan. This market annually sells over 100,000 dead or alive dogs. In response to the Moran Market closing down, we stand with the Korean Activists in shutting down Gupo Market in South Korea. Additionally, these dog meat markets should remain closed in order to truly take steps forward with ending the dog meat trade.

As seen above, many fellow activists protested in front of Gupo Market yesterday and during Boknal (an annual dog meat festival in Korea).

We must continue to be the voice for the 2.5 million dogs that are suffering in the dog meat trade in that very same country. Let’s take a stand and protest the 2018 Winter Olympics until Gupo Market is closed forever and the horrific dog meat trade in Korea becomes illegal.

 

November 4th protest in front of Gupo Market, Busan Korea. The largest dog meat market in Korea. Korean activist are sick of this barbaric practice and trade! Mr. Kim leads the march “Anti-dog meat!”, “Stop Dog Meat!” is chanted to the dog meat vendors and passerby’s. The majority of Koreans love dogs and keep them as pets. It is now time to change the law and make it illegal to torture and slaughter our companian friends. We stand with the Korean activists and will continue to support their effort to ban dog meat and give the rescued dogs a second chance!

KK9R Annual Howl-o-ween event was a great success!

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that was a part of our annual reunion! We couldn’t have done it without our volunteers, our caterers, our DJ, our sponsors, everyone who donated gifts & their time, and most of all every one of our GUESTS! This was the brainchild of our amazing Director – Gina Boehler and this event wouldn’t have come together without her and the KK9R crew! We also want to give a shoutout to SUDS (Sunnyside United Dog Society) & Lou Lodati Dog Park for providing the space!

The event was successful beyond our expectations and we are proud to announce that we have reached our goal in raising enough funds to cover Dorothy and Grace’s medical treatments. We hope to bring you more exciting fundraiser events in the future!

Poodles & Maltese’s saved from puppy mill in korea – Fosters Needed!

 

This is a video of a Korean puppy mill located in the Kyung sang Nam Do providence. This puppy mill has a total of 40 dogs, all adult white Malteses and brown Poodles. The facility owners bred puppies and their daughter would sell the puppies to puppy shops in Seoul.

This puppy mill will be officially closing down, thanks to persuasion from our rescuers in Korea. Fortunately, the facility’s condition is not bad and the dogs are in decent health. Our rescuers will be taking the dogs and ensuring that they find good homes. Many of them will be coming to NYC for adoption after vetting and quarantine. Please note: All of the dogs are adults; none of them are puppies.

We will be looking for local NYC fosters in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Nassau county beginning the end of November. 

Local fosters URGENTLY needed (Manhattan/Brooklyn/Queens). Fostering lasts 1 – 14 days. Please EMAIL KK9fosters@gmail.com if you’re interested in fostering or apply here https://goo.gl/forms/TrR6lTTly3RkHgLs2 Thanks!

KK9R and Band For Animal Save Dogs from Hoarder

On Oct 9th, Korean K9 Rescue and Band for Animal (our partners in Korea) will aid and assist in the rescue of over 40 dogs living in squalor and filth in an abandoned house in Geunheung-myeon, Taean-gun, Seosan, Korea. These are some of the worst conditions we have ever seen. All of them have all have demodex mange, ring worm, worms, etc.. it is pitiful. We currently have 6 dogs in foster care and plan to take 4 more. Korea is a tough place for dogs because of the lack of resources and help for abandoned animals. Their health and the prospect of a future forever home is always our first priority. Together with our partners in Korea, we can bring them here to NYC for adoption when they are healthy and help them start a new life! If you would like to donate towards food and medical care you can venmo @koreank9rescue or paypal koreank9rescue@gmail.com. Thank you for sharing and helping!
 #banthedogmeattrade #bandforanimal #animalrescuekorea

These are the 6 dogs we have rescued – We hope to find them homes ASAP.
