One Year After the Fire, We’re Celebrating Life in South Korea
This week marks a year since a fire devastated our rescue partner Jindo Love Rescue’s foster center in South Korea. Despite the heartbreak and loss, we’re celebrating all the lives that continue to be saved, and how much we’re now able to do for these dogs with your support.
We’ve since rebuilt and the process showed us all how much of a difference a community can really make when we come together for a purpose. After the fire, it was unclear what would happen next, or how we would bounce back, but our new foster center is now filled with love and 90 happy dogs who are only here today because of the generosity and support of caring people.
We’ve seen more than 40 dogs adopted and have many more waiting for their perfect families. We also recently shut down a meat farm and welcomed a surprise litter of puppies who we named Daffy, Taz, Babs, and Bugs.
Clockwise: New puppies Taz, Daffy, Babs, and Bugs celebrate their first and only 100-day birthdays.
In the past, many puppies died because of a lack of veterinary care and modernized treatments and many sadly still come to us sick, but this precious little group was just able to celebrate their first 100 days on Earth, a promising sign they will survive and be fine, and they will never know anything but love and human kindness.
We now celebrate this milestone for all of our puppies, and can’t wait to see them in forever homes where they’re cherished members of their families.
You can help support this lifesaving mission by adopting one of these deserving dogs, spreading the word about our need for flight volunteers, and making a donation to support more rescues and care of dogs at our foster center in South Korea.
