Korean K9 Rescue is a non-profit, No-Kill 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization located in New York City and South Korea.
Our facility in Bundang, South Korea houses dogs rescued from dog meat farms, high kill shelters, strays, and puppy mills. We provide hope to rescuers and activists whose dogs would otherwise have little chance of survival without adoption. The adoption rate in Korea is less than 15% but it is significantly higher in the United States where we bring most of the dogs for adoption. Over 1,200 dogs are rescued and successfully adopted through KK9R every year.
At our Bundang facility, we practice safe quarantine, provide vaccinations, and carry out health screenings for our dogs. Additionally, our facility has an agility course and ten dedicated trainers that help with the rehabilitation process. The dogs develop a steady routine, build confidence, and gain trust with new situations before they are transported to NYC to find forever homes.
In NYC, we are a foster-based rescue. Our dogs are crate-trained, wear back-ups on their collars, and eat a healthy raw diet. We spare no expense on the well-being of our dogs, even if it means a hefty food or vet bill. Each dog also has specific needs that deserve to be met so that the dogs can truly get their second chance. Therefore, we make every effort to set each dog and adopter up for success. This includes having a thorough adoption screening process, ensuring that adopters possess the proper dog supplies, requiring adopters to enroll in training, and being responsive to any questions that adopters have along the way.
