SaveKoreanDogs.org is a registered non profit org registered in Korea. The board of directors consists of five, Nami Kim, JW Park, Madeline Warren and Tracey Pitz and six members. We are a very small activist group that operates out of the shelter, located in Gimpo city, 1-2 hours (depending on the traffic) north of Seoul, S. Korea. We are in the midst of paddy fields, very picturesque surroundings for dogs to go for walks. The shelter is about 500 sq.m big, able to house from 50 to 150 dogs, all our dogs are meat trader survivors rescued from meat farms and slaughterhouses. They stay with us while getting veterinary/medical treatment and warm up for a new life at second chance.

WHAT SAVEKOREANDOGS DO
Nami Kim and her team are on the front line in the battle against the Korean dog meat trade. Working tirelessly to save as many dogs as possible from this barbaric cruelty, the team also campaign vigorously and work to educate people on the horrors they contribute to by eating man’s best friend. Nami also organize anti-dog meat campaigns inside and outside of Korea during summer Boknal (three hottest days of summer eating dog meat), engage in dialogue with the government for the legislation change and trying hard to remove dog from the livestock list. Nami kim has been working on a city of Bucheon, a suburban city of Seoul to become a dog meat free city. This was initiated by Koreandogs.org’s sister city campaign. Bucheon’s friendship city in US was Bakersfield, the major Harvey of Bakersfield informed mayor Kim of Bucheon city and we have been working together to make the city the very first city “Dog Meat Free” Mayor Kim is determined to turn this into the most Animal Friendly City in Korea. There is no more dog meat farms in the city, launched DMF project in June to get the dog meat restaurants to change the signs and menus. As of August 2017, three are on the way for the changes and we are now working on the remaining restaurants to change signs and menu.
Nami Kim is the Founder and Leader of the SaveKoreanDogs Organization, a non profit registered in Gimpo city, S. Korea where our shelter is located. Nami began saving meat farm dogs five years ago and has built her name up as a leader in the Anti-Dog Meat Movement in Korea. Nami goes into illegal meat farms, negotiates with the butchers bring them to the authorities to shut down, treats the rescued dogs, and then finds them homes in the US and Canada. Nami works with activist groups in cities all across Korea to spread awareness and on a governmental level to strengthen laws and legislation.
