Camp Cocker's Freedom Flight Program
Friends - Not Food!
In an effort to bring awareness of the dog meat industries across Asia - specifically South Korea -- we have been working with international rescue teams in So. Korea for the past year to help re-home dogs who have been abandoned, sold, bred, traded, abused, tortured in the industry of alternative meat sources. If we can help re-home these dogs to loving families through our adoption process, we can create space for new dogs rescued from dire circumstances.
We understand and take into consideration some of our donors may not agree with budgeting our funds for this new program when there are countless other dogs right here in America who need help. We also know that many adopters are strictly breed-specific (we are a Cocker Spaniel Rescue after all and have met many adopters who prefer this one and only breed), or that many adopters would never consider visiting an animal shelter in their area. While some adopters feel very particular about breed, they also have a stable loving and forever home available.
If we can find these international dogs an opportunity to live a wonderful life, why would we say no?
If we have a direct, safe and easy way to make a difference in just ONE dog's life, how could we not?
Please help us fund-raise for flight costs, vet care, or share our mission to bring awareness to this industry and hopefully change this perspective that dogs are our loyal friends - not food!
