In 2018, a landlord who hated their tenant trespassed into their home when they were absent to beat up their dogs with a metal pipe.
Upon arriving home, the tenant found two of their dogs already dead, one missing, and the rest with heavy injuries from a severe beating. Their bones were fractured, and eyes were bulging out. Some dogs were unconscious. A neighbor urgently reached out to us for help.
NamNam was rescued from the scene along with Bali, who was adopted in January.
New Adopted Life
NamNam was in our care until she was adopted by a family in Canada and flew over to them in January 2019. Ever since then, sweet NamNam has been enjoying a peaceful new life.
Old Ugly Reality
We live in an ugly reality where there are physical assaults against helpless animals, dog slaughter is permitted, pet breeders in puppy mills continue their greedy business, people shop for animals like objects and toss them away without giving it a second thought.
Consequently, there are far too many animals in need of rescue, but there are only a few animal rights organizations that are actually rescuing them.
In order to ameliorate this ugly reality, we investigate countless incidents, rescue animals in distress, and promote international adoptions to give these animals new chances at life.
But recently, we have encountered a few voices of criticism against international adoption and dissatisfaction with every little thing we do for the animals.
We would like to ask these people:
What are you doing to help animals in need in South Korea?
Our role as animal rights activists isn’t to merely spectate, we must actually do something, too. That’s the ‘act’ part in ‘activist.’
We could operate more “conveniently,” avoiding criticism, but we would rather do what we feel is right to help the animals in need.
