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.

Help a shelter find adopters and volunteers by adding them to our list. For more ideas, read 5 Ways to Promote Animal Shelters on ARK. Thank you!
