http://www.koreananimals.org/ The official website for the Korea Animal Protection Society (KAPS). KAPS is dedicated to promoting animal welfare and protection in Korea through education, stricter animal cruelty laws and the continued development of the KAPS shelter.
The KAPS shelter, located in Taegu, South Korea, is the only shelter in the country that cares for companion animals. Currently, KAPS provides shelter to more than 85 dogs and 260 cats as well as a few orphaned or injured wildlife.
In spite of a 1991 law which prohibits the human consumption of dogs and cats, a flourishing industry exists within the markets in Korea. Illegal and unsanitary dog farms are hidden away in the countryside where breeders raise their stock for the butchers. Because KAPS are a grassroots organization, they need your help to campaign against these violations which most Koreans ignore and the government will not enforce. Most urgently, they need your help to keep their shelter operating.
