Adopt a pet from Yeonnam animal hospital in Seoul.

Thinking of adding a pet to your family?

Sadly, hundred dogs, cats and other animals are euthanized each year in South Korea simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters. Because there is limited space at pounds, they euthanize animals who haven't been adopted. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. By adopting pets, you'll help save the lives.

Ok, you made a decision to adopt. The next question is WHERE to adopt from? If you live in Seoul or close, Yeonnam animal hospital (연남동물병원) is an option for you.

WHY to adopt from Yeonnam animal hospital?
1) All animals that found a temporary shelter in the hospital, if not adopted, will be sent to a kill pound.

2) Available for adoption animals that haven't end up in city (kill) pounds yet, in general are healthier. In fact, many of them are healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. The hospital staff can help you examine animals. Also per Yeonnam animal hospital policy, all animals have to be micro chipped before being adopted.

3) The hospital staff normally waits past the deadline of 10-14 days hoping that their animals will get adopted. They know that they can't take them all in and have to send them to the city pound, but they also know how the animals will do there and the conditions that they face. The hospital staff tries their best to find homes for all of the strays by keeping them at the hospital longer than 10-14 days.

You don't speak Korean and think it might be a problem?
If you decide to adopt from Yeonnam animal hospital, please know that you have a translator if you need it. We are happy to help!

It is a common misconception that animals end up in shelters because they've done something "wrong." In fact, most animals are given up because of "people reasons," not because of anything they've done.

By adopting instead of buying a pet, you can be certain you aren't supporting puppy mills and pet shops with your money. Puppy mills and pet shops will continue to operate until people stop purchasing their animals. Instead of buying, visit a shelter, an animal hospital or a city pound where you will find dozens of puppies and adult dogs, cats and other animals just waiting for that special home - yours.

Great write-up, Sofia! :) People should also know that there are many animal hospitals in Korea that keep animals in need of homes. If Seoul isn't close to you, check with the animal hospitals in your area. :)

There is no adoption fee, but animals have to be microchipped before leaving the clinic (20,000 won).
