Free Korean Dogs began in 2015 after our founder, EK Park, returned to her home country of South Korea and discovered the horrific realities of the dog meat trade. Today, Free Korean Dogs works to rescue, rehabilitate, and find forever homes for victims of the trade while promoting education and awareness on the subject matter. To date, we have shut down 3 dog meat farms, collaborated with local (Korean) rescue partners to save over 500 dogs from the meat trade and other at-risk circumstances, and currently provide sanctuary and rehabilitation for over 100 dog meat trade rescues who are not yet ready for adoption.

As of December 2023, we have found forever homes for over 1200 dogs who are now happily living in cities in and around Toronto, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. As a nonprofit charity organization, we are sustained by the generosity of our supporters. Our success in saving dogs is a direct result of our volunteers, fosters, and donors.
