Help Wildhearts Rescue fly these pups to Portland, Oregon!
Dogs are intensively farmed for human consumption in South Korea. They are given little food, usually no water, and live outdoors in small cages with no protection from the hot summers or brutally cold winters. Many suffer from disease and malnutrition and all are subjected to daily, extreme neglect. The methods used to kill them are brutal and they are often slaughtered in front of their cage-mates. Dogs outside of the meat industry have little chance of finding homes there unless they are pure bred, toy breeds. Learn more here.
This last winter 60+ dogs were found locked away in a hoarding situation outside of Asan, South Korea. The dogs were left to breed and their numbers grew into the hundreds. At least half of the dogs perished due to the horrific conditions they were forced to live in. Many died from illness, neglect, dog fights, and also from human consumption.
The hoarders were reported and slowly dogs are being pulled out and placed into the city's high kill shelter. 24 dogs were brought to the city shelter in January and while a few have found homes, many have been euthanized. There are 14 "hoarder" pups ready to find homes in Portland (before it's too late!)
Our current goal is to fly these dogs to the US so more from the hoarding situation can be pulled out and cared for. Wildhearts Rescue in Portland, Oregon will coordinate travel, fostering, rehabilitation, and adoptions. COVID-19 has impacted rescue efforts with less people traveling and cargo flights are more expensive than ever. We need your support to fund their journey to safety!
Any additional funds received will go towards more dogs on our list to fly here and their care. Wildhearts Rescue is a 501(c)(3) and your donation is tax-deductible! Learn more about our mission at www.wildheartspdx.com
