Dogs Available for Adoption

Welcome to SKD, SaveKoreanDogs, the dog meat trade survivors! We just hit over 1,680 dogs as of first week of June 2018, the number of heads have been adopted out to US, Canada and the UK including two in Singapore.

The dogs in the available list are done or on its way to the treatment with basic veterinary care such as vaccinations, de-worming and heartworm tests. All are 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, some found with heartworm positive are being treated two by two, three by three. Currently, we have eight rescued from Dog Tonic Farm under treatments. Our records show almost half of the rescued adult dogs (those above 1 year only) are often found with heartworm positive. We would like to share the burden of long treatment process, if you can take care of it after your adoption, we can sponsor half of the treatment costs. It takes minimum two full months as its in three stages, 2-4 weeks of pre treatment as it is required before Immiticide injection (what we call the ‘Big Shot’), after the big shot, 2-4 weeks of post treatment can be given. Test kit after a month upon completion of pre treatment will determine its half-clearance, one last test 2-3 months later will finally clear 100% including the worm eggs.

The photos/videos of the list are taken a week after they are with us. 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!
