Change a Dog's Life

If you are looking to add a furry companion to your family, please consider adopting. When you adopt, you are saving two lives! Once a dog is adopted, we are able to save another in their place, hence two lives are saved.

Adopt Me Korean Rescue (AKR) is a 100% volunteer-based not-for-profit organization. We rely on your generosity to continue to support our rescue dogs. Any amount you can donate will make a difference in the lives of our rescue dogs. Even if you can only contribute $5 or $10, it will still go a long way toward helping our cause!

Who We Are

About AKR

Adopt Korean Rescue (AKR) is a volunteer-based federally registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless and unwanted dogs in South Korea find a new home in Canada

Why Adopt a Korean Dog?

Compassion Knows No Boundaries

Every life deserves to be saved, regardless of its geographical location. Each year, over 1 million dogs are slaughtered in South Korea’s dog meat trade.

Beyond Their Breed

Many of the dogs we rescue are Jindo mixes, Spitz mixes, Korean Village Dogs, and many other breeds as well. All dogs can become victims of the dog meat trade, abuse and euthanasia.

A New Hope

Shelter dogs in Korea face stigma, making it hard to find local adoptive homes and leaving them vulnerable to euthanasia or the dog meat trade. International adoption programs have given hope to Korean dog rescuers!

Give them the new, warm home they deserve!

AKR has been able to offer homeless animals a second chance by not only finding homes for more than 650 dogs since its foundation in 2021, but also by providing them with nurture, medical care, training, grooming and other services that have prepared them for life with their new families.

Happy Tails!
