I’m walking to save the lives of homeless pets!
This year, I’m participating in Strut Your Mutt, a fundraising walk hosted by Best Friends that saves the lives of homeless pets right here in my community and all across the country.
Please support me by making a donation to my page. Your gift helps homeless pets and will support the animal welfare group I’ve chosen to walk for. Together, we can Save Them All and reduce that number to zero. Thank you for your kind support.
Last year, Korean K9 Rescue rescued me from an awful fate in South Korea, and flew me to my forever home in NJ with my mom, Lucy! Every year they save hundreds of dogs from high-kill shelters, puppy mills, and the dog meat trade. Annually, over 1 million dogs are killed and eaten. The dog meat trade is slowly becoming stigmatized in South Korea, but until it is fully banned, Korean K9 Rescue still has more to fight for.
Korean K9 Rescue's fight transcends national boundaries as they are also strong proponents of the No Kill Movement here in the U.S. Approximately 2,200 animals are killed everyday and to do they're part in lowering the national average, they work closely with local high-kill shelters to rescue breed specific dogs. They have pulled dozens of Jindos and Shiba Inus from high-kill shelters and given them a second chance at life. With your help, they can do so much more!
Your donations to our Strut Your Mutt campaign will help fund the following initiatives:
1. KK9R Animal Hospital: We are opening a hospital in Bundang, Seoul in the upcoming month. Here, we will offer low-cost vet services to rescuers and the public. We will also provide state-of-the-art quarantine services for dogs rescued from hazardous situations so we can nurse them back to health.
2. Stray Management: Many of the dogs we rescue are strays due to Korea’s overpopulation problem. There’s simply too many dogs and not enough homes. To combat this, we are launching a spay/neuter campaign to target the rural and stray population in Korea --- the first of its kind in the country!
3. Transport Van: We are in great need of a reliable van to help with transport to vet appointments, adoption events, and airport pick-ups. Every day we spend an average of 4 hours on transport alone! We want to continue to provide our pups with a safe and comfortable travel experience, which is why we need the help of donors and supporters to fund a new van.
Let's join this fight together to rescue many future pets like me!
