Free Korean Dogs is a Canadian not-for-profit organization with the goal of stopping the abuse of dogs in Korea. Each year over two million dogs are slaughtered by Korea’s unregulated dog meat industry, often after enduring unbearable suffering. Free Korean Dogs fosters public awareness, community outreach and international adoption to replace cruelty with compassion.
Free Korean Dogs was founded by our very own EK Park. Born in South Korea and based in Toronto, Canada, EK is a photographer, videographer, and animal lover. Although she grew up on a farm in the Korean countryside, it wasn’t until she returned many years later that she truly realized the cruelty that Korean dogs endure as a result of the dog meat industry. That’s when she realized that she must use all available means to give Korean dogs the love they deserve.
