Charles' Journey

February 26th 2017 ---- present

Dog Meat Trade Survivor --- South Korea

We took in two more doggies that were rescued from, an amazing small rescue run by Nami Kim and her volunteer Jenny.

We were aware of the dog meat trade in Asia but there are so many more details we have only come to learn about recently. For example, puppy mills are as horrific as they are here in the states, the only difference is when the breeder dogs are no longer useful they are then sold to the dog meat farms. We don't want to upset anyone here with the cruel details of what their death is like once they arrive at the dog meat farms (you can google it, but only if you are feeling really brave).

It is important to mention that people like Nami and Jenny who are dedicating their life to trying to save dogs from the dog meat trade, are also working hard to lobby to get the laws changed. The idea of dog meat as a delicacy is something that is popular with mostly an older male generation. Like anything that requires a progressive approach, it's younger people that are brave enough to go up against a very old culture and try to change minds with compassion towards animals.

We were introduced to by Elaine F., also a Camp Cocker supporter. Elaine lives in Illinois and heard that Nami & Jenny were looking for a rescue to take two cocker spaniels.


Yaya and Charles were sent to us through San Fransisco International Airport. With the support and network of our dedicated volunteers we were able to transport them down to Los Angeles, CA where we operate
