Rescue animals are a huge part of our lives, and this year Saltie (along with Kira & Tom) will be walking with Korean K9 Rescue for Best Friends Animal Society's Strut Your Mutt! Strut Your Mutt is a fundraising walk hosted by Best Friends Animal Society that saves the lives of homeless pets right in our community, across the country, and across the world!
Please support me by making a donation to my page and helping the Korean K9 Rescue (the rescue that brought Saltie into our lives).
A little bit about Korean K9 Rescue:
"We are a passionate and dedicated group of volunteers in New York City. We partner with local and regional South Korean dog rescuers/activists and high-kill shelters. Many of our dogs come from the brutal dog meat trade and are also puppy mill survivors. These two billion dollar industries work hand in hand with each other.
We bring them to the US for adoption because they have a very low chance of ever finding homes in their homeland because of the “stigma” associated with unwanted dogs.
We also work to end the dog meat trade in Korea where over 2.5 million dogs a year are tortured and slaughtered for consumption because of the belief that tortured dog meat gives medicinal benefits. Our #BanDogMeat Movement is creating awareness and pressure on the South Korean government to put an end to this brutal trade.
Korean K9 Rescue, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation that was incorporated in New York that the Internal Revenue Service has determined qualifies for classification as a section 501(c)(3) public charity (EIN#81-4950261). NYS charity registration # 46-48-24. NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets # RR274."
This cause means so much to me and I am grateful for your help. Every day in the US, more than 2,200 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. Each one is a loving pet just like yours and mine.
