WILLOW’S WISH MISSION

Willow’s Wish was founded on the desire to end the dog and cat meat trade. Through research and cultural awareness and understanding, we see the ability to achieve this long term goal through multiple targets. The mission of Willow’s Wish is to offer viable solutions to globally improve animal welfare through education, sterilization, legislation, conservation and adoption.

Willow’s Wish is a global foundation focused on improving animal welfare not only locally in the US but internationally in countries throughout Asia as well. We believe that in order to impact change, you must offer educational and practical solutions. We know that we cannot rescue the millions of animals in need but we can help change the landscape for future generations through targeted programs and initiatives focused on achieving sustainable change.

Quick Facts

  • Legislation is in place in the following Asian countries illegalizing the consumption of dog and cat meat: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, parts of the Philippines, parts of India

Pet overpopulation statistics supporting sterilization:

  • For every one person born, 15 puppies and 45 kittens are born

  • One female & one male dog and their puppies can result in 67,000 dogs in 6 years

  • One female & one male cat and their kittens can result in 370,000 cats in 7 years

WHO IS WILLOW?

Hi! My name is Willow.

I’m a survivor of the South Korean dog meat trade. I was rescued from a dog farm in Bucheon, South Korea on May 25, 2016 by my Grandma Nami Kim who runs a group called Save Korean Dogs. I’m a miniature poodle. I was someone’s pet dog but I got old and they turned me over to the farmer. I was destined to be used for soup stock or a medicinal tonic. Grandma wanted me safe so she asked my Mom if I could come live here. I arrived on September 28, 2016.
