The Dogist Rescue Partner Program is a new project that helps give back to the animal shelters that do so much good for animals without homes. This program helps feed dogs and find homes for pups in need.
Korean K9 Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit that rescues dogs from dog meat farms, high kill shelters, stray dogs, and discarded puppy mill dogs in South Korea. We quarantine, vet, and rehabilitate all of these dogs in our own dedicated facility in South Korea. Unfortunately, these dogs have a very low chance of being adopted in South Korea due to the stigma associated with mixed breed and "dog meat farm" dogs. Therefore, we transport these dogs to our facility in New York City and find loving forever homes for them in the tri-state area where the adoption and rescue movement is strong! We also pull breed-specific dogs (Jindo/Shiba Inu mixes) from local NYC Animal Control Centers and take in owner surrenders to help these dogs find committed forever homes. In the process, we spread awareness about the brutal dog meat trade and stand as a voice for the voiceless dogs that are still suffering.
About The Dogist Rescue Partner Program
Every season, The Dogist selects a new animal shelter to partner with. This partner is the beneficiary of the #FeedingFriends initiative, an effort to support rescue organizations by donating a day’s worth of meals to a shelter dog for every purchase made from The Dogist Shop. In addition, The Dogist will visit the shelter to photograph the dogs in need and feature them to help them find a home as soon as possible!
