Korean Animal Theme Park

한국어 동물 테마 파크
Location: Pohang - 포항

Korean Animal Theme Park (한국어 동물 테마 파크) is an animal shelter located in Pohang city.
It is a private shelter, but Pohang city asked them to take in lost animals, so they appear on APMS website (www.animal.go.kr).

This shelter has a good relationship with the local government and has around 200 volunteers who regularly visit the shelter.
They have quite a lot of dogs there.They also have cats and rescue kittens. All the animals seem healthy. The cages are cleaned regularly and well. The dogs have a relatively small space but with help of volunteers they get walked far more regularly than in many other shelters.

The shelter is off route 7 in Pohang. You will see a tourist sign for the former President's home. Take the first right; go straight for about 1 mile. When the road merges, stay toward the left. Go straight for about 2 miles. You will pass a hospital on your left and about 1/2 mile from there you will take a left turn, there is a sign on the right side of the road, and go straight and the shelter will there on your left. Everyone was supper nice there but barely spoke English.

Unfortunately, Korean Animal Theme Park can't be called a no-kill shelter what means that animals there really need you!
