Rescuing dogs from the streets of South Korea

Renata does a fantastic job of rescuing dogs from theĀ streets of South Korea.She originally rescued a dog for herself, but the terribleĀ lives led by these stray dogs drove her to persuade her friends to join her inĀ getting as many ofĀ them off the streets as she can.Renata is very careful in the rehoming of these dogs. SheĀ selects dogs individually for people who apply to help, then completes theĀ entire processĀ herself ā€” from home visits to assisting with introductions andĀ support during the first days.Fortunately, there are kind people in South Korea who offerĀ to accompany the dogs on their flights from South Korea [...]
