Korean K9 Rescue's Owner Responds To Awkwafina Adopting A Dog From The Organization

Here at Woof Republic, one of our favorite celebrities is Nora Lum, better known by her stage name Awkwafina. Not only is the Golden Globe winner extremely talented and hilarious, she is a massive dog lover. Earlier this month, People magazine reported that the actress adopted a 2-year-old dog from the Korean K9 Rescue, located in Queens, New York. According to the organization’s website, the nonprofit “saves dogs from the meat trade, puppy mills, and high-kill shelters in South Korea.”

On March 10, the actress, who already owned a cat called Gus, took to Instagram to announce that she was expanding her family of furry friends. The post consisted of numerous images of the pup, who is named Haeng-Un Lum.

In the caption, Awkwafina explained that once she became aware of the Korean K9 Rescue, she wanted to be involved with the organization. While presumably volunteering at the rescue, she came across Haeng-Un and “fell in love.” 

She also expressed gratitude for the Korean K9 Rescue and encouraged her fans to adopt rescue dogs. 

The rescue responded to the post in the comment section. 

“We are incredibly honored and over the moon Haeng-un will be living her best life with you forever. Thank you for your support and being an amazing human and inspiration [raised hands emoji] [red heart emoji],” read the comment.

In a recent interview with Daily Paws, Korean K9 Rescue’s founder Gina Boehler commented on Awkwafina's decision to rescue a dog from her organization. She told the publication: 

“She is such a genuinely compassionate person. Her choosing to adopt her Korean dog in NYC did make a powerful impact, especially on her supporters who already knew she is a huge supporter of the charity and nonprofit groups."

Boehler went on to say that she hopes others will follow the comedian’s lead and make the choice to adopt not shop. 

"Hopefully, we can reach and inspire people to adopt a dog no matter where they are from and continue to spread the message of all mistreated animals in need of a forever home," said Boehler.

We love that Awkwafina has used her platform to promote such a worthy cause! If you also want to help Korean K9 Rescue, visit their website here.

Very warm, supportive team of dedicated dog lovers. It’s all about the dogs at the end of the day, and making the best home possible for them. As a volunteer, you will chill with beautiful dogs that are full of character, learn a lot about best practices for dogs including diet and behavioral training (if you are interested and ask questions at least). You’ll field questions from prospective adopters and fosters, help fosters get their supplies. Really just help however you can, because there is a dedicated staff that has things under control. Any questions, fee free to reach out to the team, they will be happy to answer.

I can’t thank Gina and Korean K9 Rescue enough for the profound work they do saving these beautiful dogs. The amount of care, integrity, and education they put into their adoption process is unmatched and I’ve learned so much about how to become the best dog owner I could be from this.
I truly respect their dedication to the rescuing of these animals and their mission to educate the public about what happens in the dog meat trade. Their works has affected so many human and dog lives and I’m grateful for the beautiful dog that is now in my life.

We found our girl on their instagram page and fell in love. The process was speedy and thorough. Once our application was approved we had our puppy home with us in a matter of days. They set you up with a trainer in order to help facilitate the best transition for your dog and give you lots of information on the adjustment period. We’re so grateful for Gina and the whole Korean K9 Fam; definitely look into rescuing with this awesome organization.

I had the pleasure of fostering over 20 doggies with Korean K 9. I learned a lot and gained a great deal of respect for the people who run this organization. The dogs are coming to the US, fugitives from the Korean meat trade. The work that Gina and company do is unceasing and voluminous. Their main concern is the safety and future prosperity of these wonderful dogs. Korean K9 is the real deal if your interest is bringing aid and love to some of the most at risk dogs in the world.

We have adopted our dog Hugo from this great rescue and keep meeting so many new dogs in our neighborhood that they have saved from uncertain fate in South Korea. We also foster so many sweet dogs through them and believe they need all the support they can get to keep up this expensive and logistically challenging rescue.

Korean K9 Rescue is changing the lives of both people and pups for the better. They work tirelessly at their facilities in South Korea and here in the United States to ensure each of their dogs have proper medical care and the rehabilitation needed to thrive. These dogs are special and can have complex histories, but KK9R never gives up on them. It's thanks to them that so many canines get to have their second chance at life. Without KK9R, these dogs would never have gotten that chance. On top of their adoption efforts, they also have amazing foster and volunteer opportunities that bring our community together and help support their overall mission. We have adopted two bundles of joy from them, and we will always be eternally grateful for the amazing work they do.

I've adopted two dogs from Korean K9 Rescue. They are extremely committed to giving their dogs the best possible lives once they arrive in the United States. They start them on a holistic raw diet, place each dog in a loving foster home to help aid in their adjustment to city life, and work on training. When it comes to adoption, they are very thoughtful about who they select as adopters and in making sure the dog is a good match for the human. They want to find adopters who will follow through with KK9R's mission of giving the dogs a happy and healthy life.

When we applied to KK9 Rescue we went through a lovely interview process. Once we approved to meet dogs, we attended a well organized event and got to meet two dogs. We applied formally for one dog and found out a few hours later that she was matched with us. The organization made it very clear that they wanted to match dogs with the families that would be able to provide them the best home. Our dog has luxating patella's and we were told that we would need to support her with this if we adopted her. There was no sort of medical issue that was hidden, which we greatly appreciated! Since then, we have stayed in close contact with KK9 and are volunteers. We absolutely love the dedicated work that they do and hope to adopt another dog from them in the future.

I volunteer for Korean K9 Rescue and adopted my dog Lola from them! They are extremely caring, thorough and dedicated when working to find the right fit for both the adopter and dog. They take each pairing very seriously and think about the long term happiness for both parties.

Volunteering for them in person is always really wonderful-you meet great people and awesome dogs! Now, during COVID, the remote volunteering is also very rewarding.

As an adopter, Korean K9 Rescue has a strong community of other adopters and both volunteers/employees for support. Whether you are looking for a trainer or food for your picky dog, someone is always happy to help!

The mission of Korean K9 Rescue in undeniably important and it has been incredible watching this non profit grow each year and save thousands of dogs. They are the best!

A dog that saved its owner's life appointed South Korea's first honorary rescue dog

Baekgu's owner, a 90-year-old woman with dementia living in South Korea's Hongseong county, went missing on August 25, according to press releases from the county and provincial governments.
When police checked the security camera footage of a nearby farm, they saw the woman, identified only as Kim, and her little white dog leaving the village. They launched a search operation with the fire department, as well as volunteer residents who scoured the area as rain poured down.
Finally, 40 hours later, she was found in the middle of a rice field, about two kilometers (about 1.3 miles) away from her home. She had collapsed in a wet area where the rice grew tall and full, hiding her from view, and leaving her drenched and unable to get up.
She might not have made it if not for faithful Baekgu, police said in the press release on Monday.
Throughout the entire ordeal, as the weather got worse and the night grew cold, Baekgu stayed by her side -- keeping her body temperature up, even as she began experiencing symptoms of hypothermia.
Baekgu the dog saved a 90-year-old woman after she collapsed in a rice field in Hongseong, South Korea.
And it was Baekgu who authorities credited with the 90-year-old woman's eventual rescue. The search team sent out a thermal drone, which detected the little dog's thermal signature in the rice field.
The woman is now recovering in the hospital, said the press release -- and on Monday, authorities awarded Baekgu a new title for his courage.
The National Fire Agency had introduced a regulation last year that allowed the appointment of honorary firefighters, fire ambassadors and rescue dogs -- making Baekgu the country's first-ever honorary rescue dog.
Photos from the ceremony show a floral garland placed around Baekgu's neck, with a small crowd in attendance -- as well as the provincial governor.
"At a difficult time due to Covid-19, Baekgu created an unbelievable miracle and moved everyone," said Gov. Yang Seung-jo.
Shim Geum-sun, the daughter of the 90-year-old, said they adopted Baekgu three years ago after he was attacked by a bigger dog.
"Baekgu especially liked my mother, and it's as if Baekgu returned our favor," Shim said. "I was so concerned as mom went missing for hours due to the rainy weather ... I'm grateful and Baekgu is our family."

Korean K9 Rescue

Our Mission

Korean K9 Rescue is a non-profit, No-Kill 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization located in New York City and South Korea.

Our facility in Bundang, South Korea houses dogs rescued from dog meat farms, high kill shelters, strays, and puppy mills. We provide hope to rescuers and activists whose dogs would otherwise have little chance of survival without adoption. The adoption rate in Korea is less than 15% but it is significantly higher in the United States where we bring most of the dogs for adoption. Over 1,200 dogs are rescued and successfully adopted through KK9R every year.

Eight Lives Saved from Dog Meat Farm
At our Bundang facility, we practice safe quarantine, provide vaccinations, and carry out health screenings for our dogs. Additionally, our facility has an agility course and five dedicated trainers that help with the rehabilitation process. The dogs develop a steady routine, build confidence, and gain trust with new situations before they are transported to NYC to find forever homes.

In NYC, we are a foster-based rescue. Our dogs are crate-trained, wear back-ups on their collars, and eat a healthy raw diet. We spare no expense on the well-being of our dogs, even if it means a hefty food or vet bill. Each dog also has specific needs that deserve to be met so that the dogs can truly get their second chance. Therefore, we make every effort to set each dog and adopter up for success. This includes having a thorough adoption screening process, ensuring that adopters possess the proper dog supplies, requiring adopters to enroll in training, and being responsive to any questions that adopters have along the way.

About Korean K9 Rescue

We rescue dogs from the Korean dog meat trade. We work in partnership with local and regional Korean dog rescues and high kill shelters. Many of our dogs come from the brutal dog meat trade and also puppy mill survivors. None of these dogs will get adopted in their homeland.

We work to end the dog meat trade in Korea where over 2.5 million dogs a year are tortured and slaughtered for consumption because of the belief that tortured dog meat gives medicinal benefits. We stand with the Korean animal activists and rescuers in Korea. A portion of the adoption fee goes back to these groups in Korea. Please email us at [email protected] for more information and follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/KoreanK9Rescue/

Adoption events and by appointment only

Adopt-a-Pet.com is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in LONG ISLAND CITY, NY.

Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Feeding your dog a Raw Fresh food diet with Raw Dynamic and supplements

A few years after we got married, we decided to have a baby. Pregnancy had a cooling effect on me sexually. For a long time I refused to my husband in a conjugal debt, and he, knowing that it was temporary, patiently waited, and. Did not try to force me, respecting and loving.
