An important dog rescue organization in South Korea has suffered a devastating loss. This August, a terrible fire broke out at Jindo Love Rescue, which saves dogs from the country's dog meat trade. The fire tragically killed thirteen dogs, with many others wounded and missing. Now the organization has 60 dogs in their care who need shelter, food, medical attention and love. On top of that, the entire rescue center needs to be rebuilt. We must support Jindo Love Rescue and help the amazing organization get back on its feet!
Sign now to demand the South Korean government provide funding to help rebuild this foster center and help dogs affected by the fire!
The cause of the fire is unknown, but the impacts have been devastating. There are dozens of dogs who need immediate veterinary care and attention, and the entire building has been destroyed.
The South Korean government -- including President Yoon Suk-yeol -- have been promising to move forward with ending dog meat consumption in the country for years. There is even a 2018 law on the books that technically makes the slaughter of dogs and cats illegal, t but every year, many dogs are still slaughtered. And one of the crucial ways South Korea must step up and protect the innocent dogs who are horrifically killed in the practice is by supporting organizations like Jindo Love Rescue, who care for dogs rescued from the illegal dog meat trade.
In the past 5 years alone, Jindo Love Rescue has teamed up with In Defense of Animals to save over 700 dogs from the meat trade and place them in forever homes. Clearly this amazing organization needs all the support it can get after such a tragic event.
