Default Korean Dog Meat Trade Rescue needs Surgery

I know how big a heart everyone here has for Maltese. Well this one pulled at my heartstrings. Candi was rescued from a South Korean Dog Meat farm a few weeks ago.Yes they use these small dogs to makes soups or elixirs. A local rescue got her and flew her to DC where American Maltese Association Rescue picked her and another Maltese up. She's estimated to be between 2 and 3 years old. Our foster mom took her to the vet who listened to her heart and sent her to a cardiologist. Candi has a PDA, a congenital heart defect that will kill her if she doesn't get lifesaving surgery. She's scheduled for this surgery on Saturday. We're trying to raise the funds for her and we have another dog who has come to us (completely unrelated) who may also have the same heart issue. We're hoping people will consider donating to these medical bills which are rather staggering. No amount is too little; whatever you can spare is appreciated. Here's a link to all the info about her as well as videos of this dear girl. https://www.givinggrid.com/wscbej/

Thank you so much, Elisabeth. We spend so much money on spoiling our sweethearts that I hoped SM friends can spare a little for Candi. She's such a pistol.

She is adorable. The dog meat trade needs to be shut down. Cultural relativism only goes so far in the 21st century. The bile bear trade needs to be shut down. Parks exploitation of whales and dolphins needs to be shut down. There was a story of a couple who got a pot belly pig from a rescue as a pet, but decided to slaughter and eat it because it was too much work. Our whole relationship with our fellow animals needs to reevaluted.

It's just really sick especially the way the torture the animals to make them tender. The younger generation in South Korea is not the one eating dogs. It's the older generation and their perpetuation of myths about animals being slaughtered to give themselves certain properties that is the core of the problem. Luckily a humane type of organization in S Korea is approaching the farmers and helping them shut down the dog trade and instead helping them start other types of farms on their property growing certain crops, mushrooms, etc so they have that economic sustainability. Proud of the Olympians like Gus bringing this to people's attention.But yes this world has a very long way to go in treating animals of all sorts humanely.

Sadly, it's no secret that even in the United States, cats are killed for food consumption, too. I love Chinese fried rice ... but, after learning how wide spread the problem has been with people thinking they are ordering chicken dishes, but, instead are eating something else ... I no longer order fried rice with meat or poultry. It's sickening to think there are some restaurants that still do this ... until they get caught and are shut down. I still love Chinese fried rice ...but, even though I trust the restaurants I patronize ... I now just stick to vegetable fried rice.

Sue, Candi is adorable.

The torture done to so many innocent animals is sickening. I can no longer look at the pictures of tortured animals on Facebook. I know I am not alone feeling this way. Many of us have asked not to post these kind of pictures on our FB pages. It is not that I don't care. I do look at the pictures of shelter dogs needing homes ... but, to me that is different. I did have to delete another picture last night of a shelter that had a picture of euthanized dogs. It is just too overwhelming to see every day.

Sue, I know Spoiled Maltese has always been generous with donations. But, with the never-ending need for these precious fur babies that need help and medical attention ... I am wondering if AMAR reaches out to GoFund, too. Just thinking of what other avenues there might be to help AMAR even more with much needed funds for rescues. You know I am happy to help whenever I can.

Prayers that Candi's surgery is successful. And, once again, thank you, Sue, for all you do.

Marie - I agree. Just heartbreaking and there are some links or stories I just can't open because I can't bear to see or read about it. Too much to bear but we do what we can to help in rescue.
We are using Giving Grid (that's the link I gave in my post and clicking on that takes people to that site) which is the same sort of thing as GoFundMe but even better they are a crowd sourcing organization that has embraced getting help for animals and in particular urgent care for them. They've been wonderful to work with...I beta tested a campaign with them this past year and actually dealt with the head of the company who was terrific and when I was doing Candi's campaign I reached out to him and got an immediate response. The good news is that we're only about $1500 away from our goal through that campaign, and it started yesterday morning.
So great minds think alike. You are always so wonderful to pets and people in need.
