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 501(c)(3) tax-exempt global foundation focused on improving animal welfare not only locally in the U.S., 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.

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.
Help us STOP the Dog Meat Trade
Willow’s Wish is an organization founded on the belief that people inherently want to help make a difference but often cannot bear witness to the graphics connected to many of the animal welfare issues in our world today or lack the resources to achieve meaningful change for animals.
Together we make all the difference
