Jane's Fundraiser for Asan Angels Sanctuary

Dear friends, 

We need your help!

We're fundraising for Asan Angels Sanctuary, the shelter based in Korea where we adopted Momo and Noah from earlier this year.

We hope that funds raised will help the roughly 300 dogs at the sanctuary get through the cold winter months. They are in need of medical treatment, food and supplies.

Dogs at Asan Angels Sanctuary are taken care of by a 70 year old woman and also by dedicated volunteers who give their weekends and free time to make sure kennels are kept clean, food and water bowls refilled and dogs transported to hospitals. They groom them, work with a vet who comes to the shelter to vaccinate them and they are always making sure that opportunities are made for the dogs to go to foster and forever homes.  The dogs here are of all ages - puppies, adults and seniors, some who spent more than 7 years at the shelter. While a lot of progress has been made for dogs here, many still need help. It's a lot for a small number of people to care for but somehow they get it done - during the hot summer months through the cold season.

Last year we raised $1100 and were able to send Asan Angels Sanctuary $1255.74 by Christmas day. Many people donated, shared our campaign and cheered us on every inch of the way toward our goal. We hope to re-create some of that magic and community again this year. 

It is the season of giving and there are so many other causes our friends support, but we hope you'll consider supporting Asan Angels Sanctuary. 

While we welcome larger donations, we also want to encourage everyone to donate. And one path for us to reach the goal together is to have at least 100 people donate at $10. 

And what's more, this year, Yangkyu and I have been saving up each month to match our goal. That means we have an opportunity to send over $2000 to help dogs get medical treatments, food and supplies.

We can do this! And we hope you'll join in! 

Thank you always from all of us at Piri's Place, 
Jane, Yangkyu, Momo, Noah and our Sunflower Gang (Piri, Bartles & Lady)

December 9th (UPDATE)
Hello! We wrote on our Instagram stories but wanted to provide information here as well. Currently No More Sad Eyes Rescue (the stateside organization that helped bring our Momo and Noah over from Asan Angels Sanctuary) is also currently working with Band for Animal Asan, a local rescue group, to help rescue dogs receive medical treatments. They are low on funds and have an influx of animals to care for. Because they have been such a wonderful organization to us and our dogs, we decided that any donation amount that exceeds our original goal of $1000 will go toward helping BFA Asan. What is more, we are welcoming our first foster from this organization with the help of No More Sad Eyes Rescue) tomorrow and would love to help any way that we can. 

There is also a separate fundraising page by No More Sad Eyes Rescue for BFA Asan - https://www.gofundme.com/f/amy039s-campaign-for-nmser. There you can find more information, pictures and if you wish, donate directly. 

Thank you!
