We are asking for financial support in getting these two colossal canines to the United States where their chances of finding forever homes will be the greatest. We just know that these gentle giants will provide a lucky guardian and their family with years of companionship and love  for anyone fortunate enough to adopt them. Because of their extra large size the costs associated with their proper care and transport are beyond what we have ever experienced before.
Multiple individuals have stepped forward over the past months to generously help provide nearly $5,000 towards the much needed funds for transport of these over-sized pups, but because of their extra-large size the costs keep climbing and we can never seem to raise enough to get them out the door!
The cost to air transport just one dog has climbed to as high as $4,000, and so we are asking for your help today. Please help us to ensure that two innocent lives are not lost simply because they were too big.

Rescue cost for these two beauties breaks down as follows:
BOARDING: They were rescued 2/21/18 have been in boarding (average $180 - $280/month/each).

For easier math, we estimate $200/month since Feb for each 

(Total: $1600/dog to october 2018 x 2 dogs = $3200 for boarding)

MEDICAL:  Spay/Neuter ($250/each) , vaccinations 3/21/18 ($200 each), Heartworm treatment ($800 each), other tests/check ups/Grooming ($1000 each) = approximate medical = $4,500


Cargo flight (w/wooden crates) $4,000 each =           $8,000 total

Transport to airport $350/each =                                 $700 total 

Boarding:     $3,200
Medical:       $4,500
Cargo Flight $8,000
Transport:   $700
Funds Already Raised -$5,000

TOTAL..... $13,400

We were able to find a foster in Seattle, Washington and they're getting ready to fly out of Korea. It was an out of body experience to actually meet them in Korea and hug/kiss them. They truly are gentle giants!

Since the posting date of GFM (Oct 2018), additional cost of boarding ($3300) and care cost (approx $1400 in grooming and vaccinations for flight) have accumulated. We need more help so that we're don't have to use the money set aside for emergency medical for other dogs (i.e. many pups have parvo , Heartworm in older dogs, and surgeries) ~ please be a part of this journey in finding their forever home! Thank you!!!

** We estimated the boarding at $200/each x 2 = $400 for both. Since foster was in 2 different facilities, it worked out to be $492.85/month x 14 mos for both = $6900. Original post stated $3600 from Feb-Oct 2018 (short $3300 from $6900 total paid this month)

Shiba & Eva are in training school in the city of KyungJu being socialized and learning their manners. They're doing well with other dogs (big/small) - we believe they're siblings. We had to shave them down due to massive tangles (neglect being raised for dog meat, plus shedding season). They're a bit dirty this week due to the rain and playing outside, but will be getting a bath tomorrow. Their only hope of leaving Korea is with your support ~ thank you for your donations on their behalf!
