Animal Shelters

Shelter map created by Will Hughes (thanks Will!)
using Google Maps Engine Lite.

This is a community-created list of private and municipal animal shelters throughout South Korea where you can adopt, volunteer, donate, foster, or possibly find (or bring) a lost pet. ARK does not have a shelter of its own.

Also check Korea's Animal Protection Management System, a Korean-language website listing municipal pounds throughout the country as well as vet clinics that hold lost and abandoned pets.
