Dog meat consumption ban in South Korea


There's a sigh of relief and talk by all animal lovers when the good news was announced that the South Korean Court had ruled that the killing of dogs for meat is illegal. For years, animal activists all over the world tried very hard campaigning for this. Check it out at this page from The Star on June 23, and here from the Animals 24-7 Magazine.

For many, especially the dog meat eaters, this issue is controversial as their belief is that eating dogs is no different from killing and consuming any other domestic animals.  Dogs are meant to be "MAN'S BEST FRIEND". They are widely bred and kept mainly as pets and not meant to be a delicacy on the table.

Adoption News

The June month seems to favor cats as we got 5 cats adopted and 10 dogs bringing the total to 15  - the highest since the start of the year.




Events Happening

In June, our paw friends were more than happy to see the many faces of students and working adults from schools, colleges, universities and multi-national companies, coming in to provide community service and spending time with them at the shelter.  We hope that this will continue regularly by all concerned and not only as required in their extra-curriculum program.
