Dogs Available for Adoption

Welcome to SKD, SaveKoreanDogs, the dog meat trade survivors! We just hit over 1,710 dogs in the US Homes as of first week of August 2018.

The dogs in the available list are completed or on its way to complete the treatment with basic veterinary care such as vaccinations, de-worming and heartworm tests. All the dogs in the below list are health checked, medically cleared and ready to fly as required by US and Canada quarantine regulations. We spayed/neuter the dogs (with an exception of less than 6 months old) right after the dogs came to our care straight from the meat farms and slaughterhouses all over Korea. Sometimes our rescue members in other cities do the basic care and bring the dogs over to us but mostly we take care of all the process from rescue, medical treatments, nurture them, finding homes when they are ready and send the dogs to you either by cargo flight or by flight volunteer.

From time to time, those still under treatments such as heartworm, skin issues, or malnourished are not listed. Currently, we have two dogs at the training school with behavioral issues. Almost all are fully vaccinated (Some puppies are waiting for 2nd or 3rd shots), spayed/neutered and health checked. FYI, those less than 6 months are not spayed/neutered, puppies less than 10 – 12 months do not get infected by heartworms. Its mostly adults dogs over a year get heartworm.

The photos/videos of the list are taken a couple of weeks after they’s arrived while warming up. This is for you to view only (they may look a little different now) I send you the latest when you have confirmed your adoption. We need to mention that we won’t be able to describe exact weight as they gain so much weight after our care. The difference is huge. As for Linda (lives in Seattle now) was found so malnourished upon rescue but gained 9 kg (20 pounds) over three months since the rescue in February 2017. The weight ranges, as for Jindo mix its normally 20 to 35 pounds when fully grown, for Hound/Tosa mix, they are minimum 50 to 60 pounds.

The photos and videos in the list are taken after a week or so, they may not look friendly (or clean) here but all are warming up for a second chance at life.

Please read the adoption process before you pick your dog. Thank you!

Lady Moo is one of our board members. (Our board of directors and members are rescuers if not promoting local adoptions) Lady Moo is a 73 years old active rescuer who has been looking after 17 old and sick dogs at home. She goes out to rescue whenever she bumps into dog traders or trader’s truck near slaughterhouses. She lives near Moran dog meat market. This rescue with Lady Moo in May was not planned at all but the butcher was about to sell 17 dogs to the slaughterhouse nearby. We went out together and all the dogs were surrendered to us.
Rescue Background
It was middle of May 2017 Lady Moo called us and asked for help. Her neighbor, an alcoholic was selling his dogs to the nearby slaughterhouse to buy rice wine. Lady Moo stopped him and kept calling and begging us. We went to have a look at that farm together with Lady Moo. It wasn’t a big meat farm only 17 dogs including eight puppies less than a month old. We fixed a rescue date and went together to negotiate with the butcher.
By last week of May, we managed to pull out all the 17 in a day, had three vets over to our shelter for their health check up. All got vaccinated, spayed/neutered and health checked. The eight puppies of Lady and Moo found homes after three months, six live in Minnesota, US.
This is one success story of a dog trader giving up farming dogs for good. The former/ butcher now farms flowers.
All have flown out including the eight puppies from Lady and Moo, most of them became Minnesotans. One last dog from the rescue left behind was “Minnea” At last he has found his home in New York January 2018.

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 were surrendered and came with me to our Gimpo shelter.

300 Dog Meat Farm- 2016

This rescued has the most traumatized dogs of all. The 300 Dog Meat Farm was a huge, illegal meat farm located in Bucheon City. The farm was our biggest project of 2016, but also the largest shut down she had ever attempted. Beginning in May 2016, we began negotiations. Eventually, the farm agreed to shut down. This was part of “Dog Meat free Zone” the city of Bucheon task. The rescue was divided into two as no space was available at Gimpo, the main shelter. We had 144 dogs then. The first pull out was in late May 2016 and second pull out was carried out 1st July after securing a boarding that can house the 100 dogs. After rescue, Nami found ALL (with an exception of one) the female dogs to be pregnant. In the end, this shut down saved many more than the existing number of heads. The butcher is now doing a new business selling scrapes and collect junks for a living.
It took almost a year to adopt out so many dogs, average 30 dogs (record breaking 52 dogs in October 2016) and we still have 50 dogs left behind no home to go to. Most of them are traumatized, unpetable, unapproachable. These are the dogs adoptable waiting at the shelter for their forever homes:

Update: we have been able to send out more than 200 dogs from October last year since Hong’s surrender of all his dogs to us from early September. We secured some space at our shelter to house the dogs at Hong’s. Most of his dogs are brought to us and under our care.

Hong is the next door neighbor to the shelter. Amazingly, Hong raised, sold, and butchered dogs just minutes away from our safe haven. Hong was initially a difficult person to negotiate with and shut down, but after one summer of very little profit, Hong finally agreed to give up the dog meat trade. We decided to take Hong under her wing and show him a new way. We hired Hong as a full-time caretaker and now uses his property as a boarding facility for more rescued dogs. Hong has learned how to treat the dogs with love and care and realizes now that dogs are not for meat. Hong’s new nickname is “The Dog Papa”, and he is proof that compassion can be taught and people can change. Out of about 70 dogs Hong used to keep, more than 50 dogs are flown out and found homes in US.

All are flown out and adopted with an exception of one that is Lydia. Lydia spent six months at a foster home and found a home late 2017.
This rescue has turned out to be a disaster when he got caught by me breeding dogs behind me. It was 17th March, I stopped paying him. Also he rented out a corner to his friend’s illegal puppy mill. I reported this to the authority to Gimpo city animal welfare, his friend was charged under the law and paid heavy fine. All the dogs were surrendered to us upon signing the contract on 22nd OCt 2016. I had 30 of Hong’s dogs flown out, some of the remaining dogs at our shelter were taken back forcefully by him and would not release unless I paid huge amount of money. I hear another group is buying dogs from Hong, this will only fund him to go to his new Tosa fighting business. One pays him he won’t stop breeding, selling and dog fighting venture he is up to now. Hong is the most greedy butcher I ever encountered. Once a butcher is forever butcher, men don’t change.

Neighbour illegal Slaughterhouse 16

All the dogs rescued found homes in US other than one, Ollie.
These sixteen dogs were rescued from an illegal slaughterhouse near our shelter on January 9, 2017. The slaughterhouse did not raise many dogs of their own, but earned money ($30 per head) by slaughtering the dogs the other villagers would bring to them. After negotiations, Oh, the butcher, agreed to turn over the sixteen dogs to us and to never kill again. Oh is a well-connected man in the Dog Traders Association-Gimpo Branch.

Ollie was the only dog left from the 16 dogs rescued, flew out in October 2017 to LA, fostered by Barking Lot) Ollie won’t be ready till his heartworm treatment is done.

Like many of our dogs getting their first taste of freedom, Ollie is unsure around loud noises and sudden movements. Ollie is nervous but curious; shy but sweet; hesitant but intrigued by his new world. Even though he’s so big and has such an intimidating bark, Ollie doesn’t seem to have an aggressive bone in his body. He will come around rather quickly and being a part of his rehabilitation will be an extremely rewarding experience. Can you be the one Ollie learns to depend on, trust in, and the one who will watch him blossom into the dog he has the potential to be? Ollie is neutered, received vaccinations on Jan. 15, and ready to fly!

Project Save 70 - Junkyard Meat Farm

“Project Save 70” is one of the first rescues of 2017. The dogs come from a junkyard that makes money from recycling and selling scrap. Located in a huge warehouse, it was found that the junkyard also raised and sold dogs for meat. The dogs here were born into total darkness in the warehouse, almost like a cave. They never saw light, felt rays of sunshine on their backs, or knew anything other than a tiny cage raised above ground. These dogs have all had to slowly be exposed to light as to not hurt their eyes and potentially blind them. Most of the dogs are extremely nervous and don’t understand the world that they are just now seeing for the first time. They are also untrusting of people and most back away in fear. These dogs will need time and patience while they learn to adjust.

Incheon Puppy Mill Dogs owned by a hoarder

Update: All of them found homes after two months with us.

The story of the dogs how they were rescued, a long story behind the rescue.

Fourteen heads are safe with us, warming up to live a new life. They will be undergoing medical care for a week. Seven Afghan Hound are already taken by a rescue group, the remaining dogs will be available middle of April.

This rescue has a long story to share. It was late January that I received a message from Congressman Pyo’s friend whose name was Pyo as well, a police officer in Incheon city. He informed me about this puppy mill and asked for help. We went down to inspect the place which was located in a commercial building, its was a hell. We started to work on it right away working together with the city official in charge of animal welfare. While the court order was about to arrive at the mill, the owner was found dead on the 20th March.

This is the facebook post link I shared on the 20th March.

“Karma works! Heart attack got him! The owner of this puppy mill in Incheon drop dead three days ago. Its all over now. We have the dogs in our care while taking all possible action to legalize the ownership of these 14 dogs under our custody.

I must go back to the scene. It was 30th of January congressman Pyo’s friend, a police officer reported this to me. We started to work on this with the Incheon city officials and the landlord. Fine and court order issued.

This place is undergoing major cleaning by the city, we may need four trucks. Congressman Pyo’s office is the big contributor to this rescue.
We have seven Afghan Hound, one German Shepherd, one Golden Retriever, three standard poodle, Middle Asian Ovtcharka, all 14 are undergoing medical treatment till first week of April.
All gone and found homes.
