Here are the dog meat trade survivors! We just hit over 3,500 dogs as of October 2020 flying out to the homes in the US and Canada. We started sending dogs out of Korea since 2012 when we realized local adoption was not safe.
한국에서 최초로 대거 해외 입양을 보낸지 10 년이되는 시점이 되었습니다. 구조이후 보호소에서 몇달을 거치며 가족과 살수 있는 적응을 하게 하며 그간 을 를 떠나 미국과 캐나다로 입양 간 숫자가 2021년 8월 기준 총 3,700 여 마리가 되었습니다.
(사) 세이브코리언독스 보호소는 특성상 몸집이 큰 소위 “식용견” 이라 불리는 개를 지난 10년간 구조해 왔으며 수의학적 처치, 백신 접종, 중성화, 사상충, 파보, 피부병치료 등등을 마친 후 미국과 캐나다에 해외 입양을 보내고 있습니다. 아래 목록은 접종 한달 후, 모든 처치가 끝난후 비행기를 탈 수 있게 된 행운아들로 해외의 가족을 기다리는 아이들입니다.
*Please, please read the adoption information/process first before you pick your dog. You can find the most frequently asked questions answered in the link. https://savekoreandogs.org/adoption-information/
***** Very Important ***** FYI, please take note pups under the age of 5-6 months are not spayed/neutered, those less than 10-12 months are safe from heartworm.
HEALTH & WELLNES: Adoptable Dogs have completed basic veterinary care including:
- Routinely administer vaccinations for Rabies and DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis & Kennel Cough, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza virus, Parvovirus) according to US and Canada health and vaccine regulations.
- Puppies may get Parvovirus vaccine if less than 4 months old.
- X-rays and blood tests are performed when health check results require that.
- Spay and neuter dogs 6 months and older.
- Dogs with skin issues and/or malnourished dogs will be treated as needed.
Sometimes heartworm positive dogs will be treated, which takes 4 to 6 weeks depending on the stages. *FYI, those with less than a year do not have heartworm. Note: Temperature plays a BIG part in the life cycle of heartworms. “Temperatures must remain above 57 degrees F (14 C) for at least 45 days straight and at least 2 weeks of temperatures over 80 F (If these conditions are not fulfilled, the parasite cycle cannot be completed and your dog is safe)” – American Heartworm Society. For more info on heartworm, here is a useful link. http://www.vetstreet.com/dr-marty-becker/heartworm-treatment-for-dogs-what-you-need-to-know
PHOTOS & VIDEOS: Photos/videos are taken a couple of weeks after they arrived at the shelter and when they’re ready to be adopted. We update photos and videos when we can (dogs may look a little different, especially fast growing puppies). If you are interested in a dog we will do our best to get updated photos/videos as we process the application.
AGE AND WEIGHT: It can be difficult to estimate age and weight. The veterinarian will provide estimated DOBs and their weight changes as they grow so fast after so much deprivation and malnourishment on the farms. For reference, the average adult weight range for Jindo mix is 20 to 40 pounds, the Hound/Tosa mix is 45 to 60 pounds. When you inquire, we send you the latest weight in our medical records. When we book the flight our veterinarian will sign the health and vaccine certificate for the quarantine inspection.
HOUSE TRAINING: Our dogs may not know how to take treats from hands, they may not know how to play with toys or walk well on leash. They are not potty trained (but they learn fast). Some are shy and timid until they learn to trust humans. Most of our dogs may have witnessed slaughter scenes and have some level a trauma (zero, low, medium, or high). They will need time and patience to learn to dog.
DOGS IN FOSTER: Some of the adoptable dogs are already in foster homes in the USA and Canada as noted in the profile. Some of the dogs are also taken in by rescue groups that we partner with, and we may ask you to contact them directly if you are interested in a dog in their care.
Please read the adoption information/process before choosing a dog. Most of the questions you ask when you send us a message can be found in the link. Thank you!
