By the time you read this Nami Kim will be back on the front lines fighting the dog meat trade in South Korea
Davey’s Voice had the honor of meeting Nami Kim of NamiKim.org. Nami is a retired Professor of Comparative Religious Studies, having taught at Stanford University. An intelligent, compassionate fearless warrior she is fighting on the front lines of the dog meat trade in South Korea, the most horrific animal abuse in the world.
To date, Nami has shut down 15 dog slaughterhouses and restaurants. Risking her life, threatened and manhandled, Nami finds strength through her love of dogs. Her inner warrior has awakened. Nami is training teams of fighters in cities throughout South Korea. These Special Forces target dog meat restaurants, butchers and slaughterhouses and shuts down these hellholes. Korea has an Animal Protection Act, which is useless, most police don’t know about it and the highest fine is only $200. Nami and her fighters rescue all the dogs. Small dogs find homes or fostered. Most of Koreans live in high rise apartments, leaving no homes for the big dogs. The big dogs are in desperate need, their only hope for a safe happy life is to find a forever home in the United States or Canada
Korean butchers buy dogs from dealers for $20 a dog. They turn around torture, butcher and sell them for $100. The big dogs being most at risk, the butcher gets more meat and more bowls of soup out of one big dog. The torture that Nami has witnessed is so heinous she can’t even begin to share. At this very moment thousands of dogs are crying out in unimaginable pain as they are tortured.
Only 4 days in California, we had a moment to sit down with Nami as she shared stories of the fight, her needs and wishes. This year Nami’s goal is to save even more dogs, establish a shelter with the help of John Dalley of Soi Dog and continue her work towards completely banning the dog meat trade in South Korea. Nami is no longer the lone warrior, with her team of fighters, they are stopping the murderers in their tracks.
Nami Kim is our HERO, Davey’s Voice has joined the fight!
