We're still collecting donations

On the 28th May 2020 we'd raised £215 with 6 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

This is Sam's Story. 

Sam was rescued from becoming 'dog meat' by KONI a dog rescue charity in South Korea. He is now being treated by KONI and living with a foster family who are providing the love and care he needs. We are looking to raise £18000 to cover his vet checks, quarantine and flights to get him to this forever-home in America, where a family have adopted him and will provide him with the life he deserved. 

Sam was bought as a Meat puppy he spent his short life being abused and neglected waiting for his life to end in the most unimaginable way. He was suffering from teeth, heart and skin problems, malnourished and living in the hot summer heat without water or food.

Despite the beatings and abuse, he suffered as a dog meat- puppy he was so sweet and excited to have anyone pay him attention. 

He lived in very bad conditions without water in extreme heat. We asked the owners if we could provide food and water but they refused saying they are waiting for him to die as the meat collector was coming in a few days. 

This is when we knew we had to rescue him ASAP before he was sold!

KONI ambulance quickly arrived and we were able to negotiate his release and took him immediately to the vet to get him some much needed medical attention.

He had been neglected for a long time, so his treatment was started and we knew it was going to be a long road to recovery. He was taken to KONI where he was under 4 weeks of intensive care. 

Once he was recovered he started his long 254km journey on the Korean bullet train to his foster family in Pyeoungteak South Korea. 

He is now being fostered and trained by our foster family who is building his confidence and giving him the much-needed love he deserves.  

Please donate to help Sam get to his final adoption family and to cover the rest of his treatment cost. Any additional funds raised will be used to help rescue more dogs like Sam who are still waiting for help. 

Thank you.
