Lilly and Pinch were once family pets. But when their owners decided they didn’t want them anymore, they were sold to a South Korean dog meat farmer and destined for consumption during Bok Nal days, a period during summer months where dog meat is consumed widely.
Imagine what it must have been like for them to suddenly go from the only home they had ever known to suffering in a barren, filthy cage with no escape from the brutal heat at the peak of summer.

Fortunately, Lilly and Pinch are now safe from suffering, and 31 more dogs from the same illegal farm will soon be free as well.
Without shelter, veterinary attention or comfort of any kind, these animals waited helplessly for death – until HSI and our local partners including Free Korean Dogs were able to shut down this horror and release them. Now these dogs will have the chance to start new lives in the United States. Please help them with a donation today »
Here is what your donation could provide for these dogs in need:
£25 – contributes to the purchase of items like food and bedding
£40 – covers all vaccinations required to bring one dog to the United States
£75 – buys a sturdy, comfortable crate for one large dog during their rescue to freedom
With the support of compassionate advocates like you, HSI has been in South Korea since 2014 working with dog farmers to permanently close down their facilities and help them transition to new, humane occupations. Our vital work saves animals’ lives, but we can’t continue to do it without you.
Millions of dogs – whether raised on these facilities, abandoned by former owners, or “left over” from puppy mills – are still suffering on these terrible farms, destined for slaughter. On behalf of all those just like Lilly and Pinch who are still waiting, we thank you for helping us keep up the fight against this unforgiving industry.
