Maya's Journey

April 16th 2017 --- present

Dog Meat Trade Survivor -- South Korea

We committed to taking Maya who was rescued from, an amazing small rescue run by Nami Kim and her volunteer Jenny whom we have been working with for the past few months.

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 lives 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.

What we know about Maya so far:

  • Cavalier King Charles Mix maybe?
  • House trained
  • Super sweet!
  • Good with other dogs
  • 16lbs
  • Maya will be seeing our Veterinarian for a check up so we can get a good idea of how old she is, and if she needs anything. 


At Camp Cocker we are dedicated to re-home dogs in need, and Maya fits that description well.

If you would like to donate towards Maya's vetting, boarding, and flight costs, please do! We are always playing catch up with doggie medical bills and they add up fast! You can be a part of her rescue story.

We don't know much about Maya yet. But if you want to  adopt her, you can complete our application after reading our adoption process.


We plan on updating this page often so stay tuned!
