Trauma Troop

Meet the Trauma Troop! Some of our dogs will take longer to be adopted as they are very traumatized. They have been maltreated, beaten, abandoned, tortured, and their trust to human is shattered, mostly importantly, they have seen the horrors of dogs being slaughtered. If you would like to challenge one of these dogs, please message and sign yourself up for this program.

Please note that it is not advisable to adopt traumatized dogs into homes where there are young children.

Here is a guideline for the homes adopting Trauma dogs.


We also have an auction based fundraising Facebook group . Here, volunteers donate items to be auctioned off and sold. All the funds raised help provide veterinary care, vaccines, and food.

Please join us to help the most dogs in need! These scared of humans and timid so far “unpettable” “unapproachable” are the dogs in need of our help. These dogs have so much love and simply don’t do well in a facility with loads of loud dogs. If you are up to a loving challenge, please contact

Before inquiring about dog ages, please read the following.

We do not know the dogs’ ages exactly but can only estimate they are between 10 months and 1 year old.
Most of the dogs listed here were rescued from a dog farm that had 300 dogs and slaughterhouses and puppy mill. Farmed dogs usually go to the butcher’s knife before they are 12 months old. It is believed that dog meat is most tender when dogs are 10 months to a year old.

We can also only give an estimation on the weight of each dog because the exact amount is always changing. The dogs tend to start quite thin and malnourished but put on more and more weight the longer they stay with us.

AND NOW MEET THE TRAUMA TROOP!

Kenny is very nervous when people come around, staying toward the back of the cage with his tail tucked between his legs. Kenny tends to bite people as he is scared for his life, but he gets along really well with the other dogs.

The trigger is humans so every time she sees a person she immediately thinks she is going to die. This poor girl has seen and endured so much to react with this sheer terror. A very special person is needed who can give Blossom all the love in the world. Dedication will be key in Blossom’s recovery.

There isn’t any aggression coming from Bobby, but the loud and scary environment keeps him constantly nervous. I dread to think what he has seen and heard to make him so panicked. Bobby is still so young and can have a wonderful life ahead of him. With time and patience, Bobby can recover. **Feb. 10 Note: Bobby is currently at training school and not yet available for adoption.


Name: Ralph

Age: 10 months old

Gender: Male

Breed: Jindo

Information: 10 month old Jindo boy with bad trauma. Many others would be aggressive after everything Ralph has gone through and we think it says a lot about his personality that he does not bite. Ralph is scared to death of humans and every time he sees one he really thinks it is his turn to die. Ralph needs someone to just sit with him and listen to soothing music while he learns to trust humans again. I hope someone with an abundance of love, patience, and understanding can help Ralph and show him there is good in the world.

We have her on a special diet now so she can gain weight and she is looking healthier and healthier everyday. Bell has also begun to take treats from a person’s hand, though she is still very timid. Bell is such a beautiful girl despite some scars she has on her face. Bell tried to escape from the farm she was at multiple times and has ended up with cuts from the fence that was keeping her in. Bell is making such progress and we hope her new family can continue to help and understand her. **Feb. 10 Note: Bell is currently at training school and not yet available for adoption.

Name: Percy

Age: 10 months old

Gender: Male

Breed: Jindo

Information: Right now Percy tends to run and hide if a human even makes eye contact with him. Potential adopters should have experience with raising and training shy dogs, and expect a transition period with lots of hard work to last months.  Every new stimuli and experience will be a challenge for Percy and his parents. Right now he is terrified of his surroundings and has never been walked on a leash before. Percy does not yet take treats from the hand or engage with people and is terrified of loud noises and sudden movements. Percy is neutered, vaccinated, and healthy.
