Rescues at the Rice Mill Dog Tonic Elixir Farm

APRIL 2018

LOCATION: GIMPO

"We had four pups released by the butcher 7 weeks ago, he wanted to keep the three for breeding while asking for money. We know he does not have proper license to do this, no farming license to start with. We are here pulling out the remaining dogs today. The first white dog is the mama of the four pups(Yeni, Yan, Annie and Kori) the butcher released seven weeks ago. The puppies are all with the homes"

"It's basically a goat farm for producing goat elixir, the butcher also sells dog tonic for the buyers without livestock license. We rescued all of them and brought the butcher to the authority in early April. Almost all the 15 dogs are found heartworm positive and are very timid. They will learn to live with humans and warm up for the new planet"

Dogs rescued from the Mini #DogMeatFarm #Gimpo 

APRIL 2018

LOCATION: GIMPO

"We had total 20 dogs rescued from this meat farm cum heavy construction equipment rental site over the years. Sharon pulled almost all of them. No more dogs there but saw a bull dog there, few chickens and goats. The reason he raises these are simply because he doesn't trust the quality of the meat being served at the restaurants. He wants his own meat. His business is going almost bankrupt"

Rescues at YOO's #DogMeat #Farm #Gimpo #SouthKorea

APRIL/JUNE 2018

LOCATION: GIMPO

"We had four pups released by the butcher 7 weeks ago, he wanted to keep the three for breeding while asking for money.

This is one farm that our rescue member was negotiating with the butcher for over a month. He surrendered the four pups but the butcher is asking for money for the rest of three big dogs. We do not fund butchers as they will do this again and again even after signing agreement. We have reported the case to the city, the butcher is shutting down the meat farm.

Rescues from Mini Size Bong's #DogMeat Slaughterhouse 

MAY 2018

LOCATION: GIMPO

Our team heard a news from a school teacher who lives near the old man’s house. He has been doing this for over 30 years nothing but slaughtering dogs for a living . The house had a few cages with dogs in it that apparently were about to get slaughtered for his next income. We managed to talk to his younger brother and family members. The butcher had an motorbike accident and he is still in coma. It was the family agreed to surrendered them all. 

 

"This is one kind, all his life did nothing but slaughtering dogs for livelihood in his own private home. I just can not believe neighbors put up with the smell and barking for over 30 years and no one actually took an action until we came"

JUN'S RESCUES FROM THE BUTCHER'S #DogMeat #Farm 

JUNE 2018

LOCATION: NEAR GIMPO

Jun is a personal friend of mine. He is an artist living in Gwangju. There is a private meat farm (breed dogs for his own consumption or sell the dogs to dog traders) not far from his studio. It took a while for Jun to convince the old man and come to negotiation. The old man surrendered the dogs. 

"Tough negotiation again on the site while pulling them out. We won in the end. I always mention the enforcement of animal protection law and the heavy fine under six violations. The butcher wants to keep a dog for himself. The cages will be destroyed."

JULY 2018

LOCATION: NAMYANGJU

"One of the dogs rescued last week is the worst heartbreaking story of all I have seen in my last seven years of rescue. Her eyes bring me tears. She is named "Penny" by Jess. Almost drowned in that waste water, half of her right ear cut, rope so so tight chocking, more than hundreds of ticks. I still wonder how she survived. She's been eating well but very afraid of humans trembling. Jess Abella Gilroy and Sylvia were the hero of this rescue. Salute you both! "

"...what this old man wants to do? Negotiation on going, I stick to my policy I don't buy dogs. I can say I am one woman who've dealt with butchers and dog farmers the most in Korea. He gave away 8 dogs (including sick Seree) I won't be able to take all the dogs but those adoptable ones. He does not have one license, no permit to farm livestock. I let him know the total amount of fine he has to pay for six violations mostly under environmental law. No disposal sewerage facility contaminating the water and the soil itself is exceeding $5,000. One of the two medias that were with us is Korean Observer, thank you for this footage. "
