Seoulmates’ 4th Day of Giving: Korean Animal Protection Society (KAPS)

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 4 Calling Birds, 3 French Hens, 2 Turtle Doves, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
Happy 4th day of Christmas! By today these animals are really beginning to stack up! If you’re an animal lover how about volunteering at one of Seoul’s animal shelters?  KAPS or Korean Animal Protection Society helps pets get into foster care and eventually become adopted. Volunteers can help by playing with, walking and grooming animals. 
December 28th
           4th day of giving
Korean Animal Protection Society
KAPS is looking for people in the Daegu area to spend one on one time with the animals located at their facility.  They host  a dog walk once a month where volunteers and dogs alike can get together and socialize. 
If Dague is too far away, there are other ways to help.  Volunteers can foster a pet, make adoption profiles, raise awareness of KAPS in Korea and within the foreign community, and fundraise.  
Donations of items and money are also greatly needed. If you are interested in Adopting a pet in Korea KAPS is a great place!

Since that time my travels have lead me to visit over 60 countries, marry a fellow globetrotter, move intercontinentally seven times and to create temporary homes in four continents! Through my travels, I’ve held many suitcases packed for adventures as a journalist, blogger, philanthropist, teacher, army-wife, magazine director, photographer, barmaid, but mainly just an adventurer. With each new experience, elsewhere, I endeavor to live sensibly while exploring a new culture, living sustainably, and giving back whenever possible. I aspire to make this travel blog help those starting a new life elsewhere or just passing through…
