KK9R Alumni Pups, Adopters, and Trainers Attend KS Dog Agility Workshop

On March 23rd, some of KK9R alumni pups and adopters joined us for a special training field trip to Kim Seiter’s Dog Agility in Oak Ridge, NJ!

Many thanks to the adopters of Oliver, Zeus, Astro, Grace, and Autumn for attending this session; big thanks to our own KK9R trainers, Hannah and Johnny, who attended with their own pup; and the biggest thanks and shoutout to Kim Seiter for conducting this wonderful training workshop for us! We know everyone loved it and we can’t wait to spread the word!

From KS Dog Agility’s Facebook page:

“KS Dog Agility welcomed Korean K9 Rescue, adopters and friends yesterday to a introduction to agility seminar! What a fantastic group of people, dedicated to helping these dogs have a better life than the cages of a meat farm in Korea. These dogs are tortured and abused as food for humans.

There are some real agility superstars in this group and I was amazed to see how well socialized and capable of learning these dogs were! It is truly a pleasure to give back to rescue. Please check out there website; www.koreank9reacue.org and consider a donation. And keep an eye out for my new foster…. “splinter”, which I have nicknamed “Shere Kahn” “tiger” as he is Korean Jindo Tiger dog rescued a few months ago from a meat farm that was closed down. He was found in small cages with his litter mates, shut down and withdrawn. I’m truly impressed with the work Gina Boehler, her trainers and foster homes do with these dogs!”

Here is some additional information about Kim Seiter’s Dog Agility training:

“…. Her positive training methods are based off of initiating the dog’s natural ability to learn. Dogs will have the opportunity to learn many tricks which assist in teaching them how to use their body… Toys and food are used as rewards for desired behaviors, creating a very happy motivated canine training partner. Agility is a terrific way to extend your relationship with your dog into a fun active sport you both will enjoy.”

Korea Doesn’t Want Olympic Visitors To See What It Does To Dogs

They said they would keep it secret to avoid giving “a bad impression to foreigners.”

PUBLISHED ON 02/16/2018
In the shadows of the star-studded Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, thousands of dogs across the country — some on farms just miles away from the stadiums — lie in cramped, dirty cages awaiting torture before they are slaughtered for food.

Cheese Has been Adopted!

A very special adoption happened this week! Cheese is a Jindo mix rescued from a shelter in Korea. He and his siblings came to NYC to find their forever homes last October. While his siblings were adopted quickly, Cheese had some difficulties that we wanted to address first. He showed signs of feral tendencies, such as food driven and dominant behavior. Our trainers from Bad Dogs Only, Hannah and Johnny, put Cheese through rehabilitation and training for several months to address these issues.

We can now see that Cheese has become a social, balanced, and well-adjusted dog thanks to our trainers. On top of this, we have found adopters who will continue his great work and progress with training. Thank you again to our wonderful adopters and our amazing KK9R trainers, this is why we rescue!

Announcement: New Dedicated Quarantine Facility in Ilsan, Korea!

Pictured above is the BFA Facility before renovation.

Our partner in Korea Band for Animal has officially signed a lease for a dedicated quarantine facility in Ilsan, Korea!

Korean K9 Rescue will now have the ability to help even more dogs come to NYC! A new quarantine facility owned and operated by our rescue partner,Band For Animal will give our dogs a safe house as well as a place where we can assess the dogs’ health, care for them, and provide some of the necessary training before their trip to the US.

BFA will hire a professional trainer who will take care of them 24 hours a day. We are so thrilled that our sister partnerBand For Animal, will allow us to use their facility – where tighter control and care can be given to homeless dogs rescued from the dog meat trade, high-kill shelters, and puppy mills in Korea. These dogs will get the dedicated care they need before coming to our NYC rescue. BFA will be renovating their new facility during the months of February/March and hope to open in April 2018.

Thank you for supporting KK9R and saving lives by adopting our dogs. This truly is a second chance for them, and we are so grateful that you are part of our rescue mission!

Meet Our First Gwangju Meat Farm Rescue Pups!

We are Beary and Rose. We are Jindo Hogu or Hopi (tiger-brindle) puppies—a rare coloring for the Jindo breed. The Jindo dog is a national treasure in Korea, but what we don’t understand is why a national treasure would be tortured and eaten.

On November 20th, Korean K9 Rescue visited our farm in Gwangju, Korea, where we lived with our brothers and sisters. We saw so much death and suffering we became numb and frozen inside. Miraculously, we were all pulled out of that filthy cage and brought to a veterinarian.

We spent the next 2 months in quarantine so we could prepare for our long journey to New York. Over time, we started to feel better, a little each day. We were given lots of good food—no more rotten dog organs for us!—and medicine to make us healthier. A kind lady named Ms. Baek came to visit and she gave us wonderful rubs that felt like massages!

We are Beary and Rose. We are Jindo puppies and today we arrive in New York City. Our past is finally behind us and we now look forward to an amazing future thanks to Korean K9 Rescue and your generous donations.

Thank you for all of your donations to our Gwangju Meat Farm rescue cause and special thanks to all who donated to Beary and Rose, our first Jindo pups to arrive after the Gwangju Dog Meat Farm shutdown.

Please come to our DOG DAY AFTERNOON adoption event this Saturday (January 27th, 12-5 PM) at Dog Island City and meet these beautiful souls. Please donate and help us #banthedogmeattrade in Korea.
