My story

Celebrate #Dogust with us!

We’re taking $150 off our adoption fee for select dogs until August 31st. Rizi is one of these amazing dogs and ready for a loving forever home with you.

We’ll also be giving free 2-weeks of @justfoodfordogs and a free @tryfi collar with a 1-year subscription! Now’s the perfect time to adopt your new best friend!


We are in a tizzy about Rizi’s cute and playful personality. Rizi is a 10-month-old female Korean Jindo mix that weighs 33 pounds and was rescued from the Uijeongbu Dog Slaughterhouse by our partners @animal_kara. Rizi is gaining confidence with crate and potty training and is very food motivated. She loves playing and walking with her foster sister and would be great in a home with another dog that can show her the ropes and help her gain confidence. Rizi is looking for a patient adopter who can help her work on her training and on establishing trust. And who’s ready to be rewarded with lots of puppy kisses! Are you looking to add the sweet Rizi to your life? Apply to adopt!

Why adoption is a great option

Rizi, a LONG ISLAND CITY Jindo dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Jindo for sale in LONG ISLAND CITY, or seeking a Jindo dog from a breeder in LONG ISLAND CITY.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in LONG ISLAND CITY already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a LONG ISLAND CITY breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Jindo breeders who help with Jindo rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in LONG ISLAND CITY paves the way for another one to be saved.
