From SKD USA President Heidi Leland – I’m happy to announce that SAVE KOREAN DOGS USA FOUNDATION, INC. (SKD USA) is an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in the United States. The IRS approved our application in 29 days. Stay tuned for lots of fundraising opportunities and other exciting projects that we will be announcing across the Save Korean Dogs community pages!

This has been a goal of Nami’s for several years. She first asked me to open a U.S. office back in 2016 while I was living in South Korea and frequently volunteering at the sanctuary. After lots of moving around and life changes, the stars have aligned and the timing is right for me personally. I’m thrilled to be able to help Nami’s dream come true. I’m excited to have a very talented and committed board of directors who possess the experience and skill sets to be successful with their individual positions and even stronger collectively. We are a team of volunteers dedicated to the cause of eradicating the plague known as the dog meat trade.

As SKD USA gets up and running, biographies will be shared for each board member so you may get to know us a little better.
