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 SaveKoreanDogs.org 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.
March 18th--- Kibby gets groomed!
Interested parties should read our adoption process before submitting their application for Kibby.
We rely 100% on the generous support of our donors. Kibby's medical vetting will be a significant expense. Please consider donating a small amount of $5 to our rescue so that we can keep doing what we do: Saving Cocker Spaniels, fixing the broken ones, and finding them perfect forever homes!
