Korean Dogs Rescued at ACS

The Bridge To Forever: Kevin’s Fresh Start

Thanks to our partnership with Humane Society International, we’ve received many incredible dogs that were rescued from dog meat farms in South Korea. Their stories often amazing, and bring out the best in some pretty amazing people.

Kevin is one of these dogs. He arrived as one of ten fellow canines to be rescued from the harsh conditions of these farms. He was absolutely, immovably terrified, save for the full-body tremors that quaked his entire body.

Kevin was quickly taken in by our vet tech Jill Elston, who has fostered many challenged dogs into confident, well-behaved canines that are ready for forever homes. Kevin didn’t leave his crate for the entire first day with Jill, and it took nine days before Kevin was comfortable to relax enough for Jill to even touch him without flinching. With therapeutic help from her own dogs, Kevin made huge strides in the subsequent days, revealing a snuggly personality that loved to spend time in Jill’s lap. However, it still took weeks of careful fostering for Kevin to be ready to make the big jump to his forever home. And jump he did.

Rescued Dog and new Family
“Forty days after I carried this terrified dog into my home, I watched him jump into a car with no fear,” Jill said. Kevin is currently adopted and adjusting well in his new forever home.

Jill – like so many animal fosters – are the bridge. As much as we all want the perfect dog or cat, the truth is many of these animals have suffered severe traumas that prevent them from opening up and being the animals they are meant to be. We’re so thankful to have fosters like Jill, and would love to add more. If you’re interested in becoming a foster dog or cat parent, please fill out a foster form HERE.
