Dogs Available for Adoption

Welcome to SaveKoreanDogs, the dog meat trade survivors! These dogs in the available list are done with basic veterinary care, vaccinated, medically cleared and ready to fly. All in the list are fully vaccinated as required by US Canada quarantine requirements, DHPPL and Rabies. We spayed/neuter the dogs after the dogs came to our care straight from the meat farms.
Those still under treatments such as skin issues, malnourished, the latest rescue 22 puppies in June from the Chun’s meat farm are updated. Currently, all are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and health checked.
We need to mention that we won’t be able to describe their weight as they gain so much weight after our care. The difference is huge. As for Linda (lives in Seattle now) she was found malnourished but gained 9 kg (20 pounds) over three months since the rescue in February 2017. The weight ranges, as for Jindo mix its normally 30 to 40 pounds, for Hound(Tosa) mix, they are minimum 50 to 60 pounds.
Please read the adoption process before you pick your dog. Thank you!

HEIDI’S RESCUE
Heidi Leland is an American our long time shelter volunteer who used to live in Korea. She spent her time walking the dogs and taking care of the needs of each dog. She went out to rescue this boy who was in danger and he was brought to our shelter April 2017. We rescued a cat at Hong’s farm together, Heidi named her “Frost” I fostered Frost for a few weeks and joined Heidi’s sister home in California.


Name: Little Bear (Bear is adopted May 2017)

Age: 18 months old

Gender: Male

Breed: Mix

Information: Go-go is here to make sure you stick to your New Year’s resolution to get those feet moving. Go-go is HIGH ENERGY. He needs more than just a couple of walks per day- he’d do best in a home that can provide him with plenty of exercise. He’s always on the go- dancing, running, and jumping and needs someone who can keep up with him! Go-go will definitely need to get in some doggie training classes to teach him manners and to harness some of that energy. Given a little time he will surely show you how super smart he can be. Go-go is neutered, fully vaccinated.

Name: Jump (Jump is adopted by Heidi)

Age: 4 years old

Gender: Male

Breed: Jindo Mix

Information: Jump got his name from the rescue May 2016. He is such a brave boy, he jumped off from a dog trader’s truck on its way to a slaughterhouse. He was found so dehydrated and malnourished. He recovered quickly, warmed up and was ready for a walk. Heidi used to take Jump out for walks and fell in love with this boy. Jump now lives happily with Heidi in Indiana.


Heidi used to volunteer walking the dogs few times a month. She would drive four hours from south to Gimpo city where our shelter is located. She loved walking the dogs and take care of the needs of the dogs when we are short of hands. One day Heidi went up to Hong’s farm (A meat farm that we turned into a boarding) to see the dog and feed water. She saw Hong’s cat tied to a pole was bleeding with serious cuts. We both rushed to our vet, not only the cuts but the skin needed lots of medical care. Frost was full of ticks and fleas and so malnourished.

Chun's Meat Farm

Chun’s meat farm was something we were not aware of its existence. We thought all the meat farms were shut down by us as the city of Bucheon was going to be a dog meat free city soon. The city official and myself have been working on the dog meat restaurants to take “dog meat soup” off the menu since April. It was Chun, the butcher who supplied the meat from his farm/slaughterhouse to his wife’s dog meat restaurant. They agreed to shut it down by end of August 2017 but it took two more months. His wife’s restaurant has not changed the menu yet as of 12th Dec.2017. We are pressing hard.
Chun surrendered his 22 puppies to us on 28th June 2017 and the rest of the dogs will be in the hands of another local rescue group. We just can not take any more dogs from him as his surrendered were all badly traumatized. We won’t be able to take in any more dogs.
Currently, the 22 puppies above 4-5 months are undergoing vaccinations and spaying/neutering. Ten puppies are medically cleared with spaying/neutering and full vaccinations. The rest of the dogs will be done by end of August.
Update: all the dogs are ready now. Among the 22 puppies, Vimo and Momo, Sid and Sam flew out late July and early August. Most of the puppies are about six months old, all are a little timid if not badly traumatized.

We had rescued two more dogs from Chun’s on the 8th Dec. He was breeding again. The farm was not completely shut down despite the fact that it was publicly announced by mayor Kim “No More Dog Farms in the City of Bucheon”.Two dogs came with me to the shelter.
