Their Story

Originally hailing from puppy mills destined for the dog meat trade, Minam and Mari's fate took a turn when a compassionate lady stumbled upon an illegal dog farm while searching for a factory location. With the help of volunteers, she bravely shut down the despicable operations, rescuing countless innocent lives. Sadly, many larger dogs, like Minam and Mari, struggled to find homes in time and faced an unjust fate. Determined to save them, volunteers decided to provide a sanctuary, renting a place where Minam, Mari, and Ruby found refuge.

Their Current Situation

Today, Minam and Mari still reside in the place that was once a symbol of suffering. Though they spend most of their days in their cages, the dedicated volunteers and the kind lady visit daily, offering them brief moments of freedom for walks and toilet breaks. However, financial constraints have cast a shadow over their sanctuary, leaving them uncertain about their future.

What Are Jindos?
