: Born to Run Global Sighthound Rescue is a grassroots dog rescue network specializing in borzois, greyhounds, deerhounds and similar breeds all over Korea. These large dogs are particularly difficult to re-home here.
Born to Run typically needs funds for vet care, crates, collars and leashes, and quarantine/immigration requirements when the dogs are adopted outside of Korea. All the board members are volunteers, the money directly helps the dogs.
Here are their website and facebook page. Have a look at the pretty dog pictures!http://www.globalsighthoundrescue.com/https://www.facebook.com/GlobalSighthoundRescue
If you can bake for us, please message me now with a list of what you plan on contributing. Thank you!
Take the #6 (brown) line to Noksapyeong. Take exit 2 and walk along the concrete wall of the army base. At the intersection keep following the wall until you get to Kimchi jars. Walk up this road on the left side past Phillies restaurant until you come to a Family Mart. Just before the Family mart is a big wooden door opening to a basement. Delicious cake and friendly folks should be found at the bottom.
Take blue bus 143, 401 or 406. Exit the bus at “Yongsan Hanshin Apartments”, the stop between "Haebangcheon" and "Namsan tunnel 3". Walk on the left side of the road when looking at Namsan. The walking path will get separated from the main road by a sound wall. The path will make a left turn, putting you on the main Haebangcheon street next to Indigo’s restaurant. Go right, up Haebangcheon street, until you see a Family Mart on the left side of the road. Just before the Family mart is a big wooden door opening to a basement. Delicious cake and friendly folks should be found at the bottom.
