Support our “Freedom for Country Dogs” Campaign


[Freedom for Country Dogs]

In Korea’s countryside, many dogs are tied to a short 1-meter leash most of their lives. We started a campaign aiming to replace that with a leash that attaches to a wire over 3 meters long. 

The idea was first conceived when foreign WWOOFers who stayed in Korean farms, saddened by the reality of many dogs being tied to such short leashes, suggested to us that WWOOF Korea play some kind of role in this matter. 

We understand that the farmers need to keep the dogs tied to prevent damages to crops or even people. But we also wanted to let the dogs run around more freely. The solution suggested was “a long wire” that would be tied between two trees, so that the shorter leash would be hooked to that long wire. The dog can have a relatively spacious room to move around. This seemed to be the most realistic approach. 


Your donation will go a long way.

We need your help to purchase the wires and start installing them in one-hundred households that have applied. We will also create and print pamphlets to raise awareness. WWOOF Korea hosts also decided to participate in this campaign without wearing short leashes.

The warm gaze of foreign WWOOFers sparked the proposal, which touched the hearts of many Koreans. Together with dedicated volunteers we started this project. We have started fundraising in Korea as well, but we ask those who love rural areas in Korea to also participate.
