Treatments needed:
- Heart worm treatment (stage 1)
- Vaccinations (just a boost).

Fundraising goal:
350.000 won to pay for his heartworm treatment + permanent home

Hello Kieran, Dairin and Isu! Thank you for helping! Did you send your donation to 1002-240-455293 (Wooribank)? I'll ask person in charge of this account to check and will update you asap (this isn't Mr. Park's, shelter manager's account - this is our group's account)!

Is this the spaniel that was on top of the hill in a cage by himself at Asan??

Yes, it is. He's a very sweet guy, and I sure hope he's able to overcome his illnesses.

Elizabeth's picture

Ahhh I love this dog! He is sooo sweet, and just wants to play and cuddle. I really wish I could foster him, but I don't think I could do two dogs at once.

Please consider helping Dunkan.
He deserves.

--------- UPDATED ---------

I have 1 good news and 1 not that good news.

Good news: on the 18th of Feb Dunkan was moved to a foster home in Bundang. Thank you, Mary!

Not good news: New vet will charge 630.000 won for heart worm treatment (because Dunkan weights 14kg) what means that we need 350.000 won more.

OUR GOAL NOW is to raise 350.000 won and to find a permanent home for Dunkan.
