The Yangpyeong massacre. In this colossal graveyard, hundreds of dogs who had lost their ability to reproduce were discarded, adding to the already countless number of starved and buried bodies. Four dogs were the last victims to be cast away into this wretched place, but they were fortunate enough to be rescued from such a tragic fate.

Pomi is the final canine survivor among the four we are introducing. Amid the piles of starved poodle and Yorkshire terrier corpses, Pomi persevered in his abhorrent situation by subsisting on nearby carcasses without access to drinking water.

Pomi, being roughly one year old, is in a critical state of health. Her body, weakened by malnutrition, requires immediate attention. Pomi’s afflictions include a dislocated hip joint and an impaired hind knee, necessitating two surgeries upon recovery. Similar to Woohyun, Pomi cannot bark due to the surgical removal of his vocal cords.

Woohyun, like Pomi, has lost the ability to bark as a result of vocal cord excision. Breeders often subject dogs to collective, stressful environments, resulting in unavoidable noise. To evade complaints from neighbors or unwanted external attention, breeders opt for vocal cord removal surgeries.

The Yangpyeong massacre has, regrettably, revealed the depths of human cruelty. However, with the support of compassionate people like you, CARE will remain committed to improving the grim circumstances these animals endure.

We have initiated the Lemon Free Project, an endeavor aimed at completely abolishing the breeding industry. Our goal is to collect 200,000 signatures in support. While the task of dismantling the breeding industry may seem daunting, it is essential to communicate a clear message with a well-defined objective to society. Commercial breeding and trading of animals are the primary causes of collective animal abuse, persistent animal abandonment, and ongoing mass euthanasia. Until animals are no longer exploited and commoditized commercially, their suffering will continue, and their societal status will remain unchanged. We kindly request your participation by adding your signature to the 200,000 we seek.
