Kami: from meat farm via shelter to Vancouver

Hello everyone!

I'm here to ask for your help. Another shelter dog needs our support. Her name is Kami.

Kami is a wonderful dog that lives in Yangju animal shelter, South Korea. 3 years ago Kami was rescued from a dog meat farm somewhere in Korea. Since then she lives in Yangju animal shelter.

Kami is a super lucky girl, and she knows it. Of course! She wasn't killed 3 years ago, she managed to stay healthy and positive during all of those years in the shelter, and just recently she found out that she has a loving place at a rescue in Canada. Isn't it amazing?

Now it's our, Kami's friends, turn to help her a little more. Would you? Please do!

Our goals:
1) To find a courier for Kami, someone who will be flying from Seoul to Vancouver sometime in the end of February,

2) To raise 700,000 won to cover these costs:
- 100,000 won - to spay Kami (she has to be fixed before leaving Korea),
- 20,000 won - health certificate,
- 200,000 won - airline approved crate (L size),
- 270 CAD - AirCanada airfare,
- 100,000 - delivery fee from the shelter to Incheon airport.

Kami is UTD on her vaccines, she was tested for heart worms, and her blood testing is done – she was sponsored by animal lovers in Korea in November 2012. We would like to thank Y., Sarah, Dairin and Kieran and their friends again for sponsoring Kami's health check!

PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING KAMI. She needs our help to continue her journey.
If you would like to help Kami, please send your donations:
1) in Korea - to Woori bank, 1002-240-455293, Park Hyun Joo,
2) paypal account: [email protected].
If you donate, please update me here or at [email protected], otherwise I won't know about your donation. Thank you.

No help is too small. Thank you for your understanding with this matter.
Our partners in Vancouver are also fundraising, and we will be updating all amounts collected.

Hi Sofia! Great to hear Kami's fundraiser has reached its goal!

Since the financial goal has been met, could you move this post to "Thank You" and post a new blog about needing a courier (if she's still looking for one, that is)? Thanks!

Will do!
