“Meet the Incredible South Korean Woman Who Rescued and Cares for 200 Dogs”
Jung Myoung Sook, a 61-year-old from South Korea, has dedicated the last 26 years of her life to rescuing dogs. With her efforts, she has successfully saved over 200 pups and provides them with care. Despite not being wealthy, Sook goes above and beyond by not only taking care of strays but also purchasing dogs that are destined to be sold in restaurants.
Sook, in an interview with the Associated Press, stated that her children are not hungry and are able to play and live freely. Despite being talked about by others and referred to as a “beggar-like middle-aged woman,” Jung remains focused on feeding her children and is content and healthy.
Sook’s kind and caring nature has attracted help from numerous individuals. Unfortunately, she has had to relocate seven times as her neighbors have complained about the noise. South Korea is known to still consume dogs as food, with the older generation being the primary consumers. However, pets are becoming increasingly popular among younger generations.
