Korean Paws Rescue (KPR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to saving domestic and international dogs and finding them homes.

Most of the dogs we rescue are from South Korea. It is estimated that 2 million dogs are raised in South Korea to be killed for consumption every year. Currently, dog meat is neither legal or banned from South Korea. We work with individuals in South Korea to rescue dogs from this cruel industry and find them new homes.

Meet our adoptable dogs!

We work closely with our rescuers and dogs to learn about each dog and their personality. As many of these dogs were rescues from South Korean meat farms, we work hard to make sure we find the right fit for each dog and each adopter.

Adopting saves lives and gives dogs an opportunity to get the love and life they deserve. We are committed to working with each adopter throughout the whole process and through the transition of bringing a dog home.

In the last three years we’ve helped rescue and adopt over 100 dogs, which wouldn’t be possible without your donations.

With your help, we can rescue even more dogs who need rescuing and find them the homes and love they deserve.

As a 100% volunteer-run organization, none of the work we do could be possible without our volunteers. We have different volunteer opportunities based on skills, availability, and location.
