KAPES - Korea Animal Protection and Education Society

IAKA KAPES is a new initiative and long-term plan to be carried out over the next ten years, designed to raise Korean society's awareness, respect and compassion for animals and the environment. The Center will advocate the benefits and rewards of the human/companion animal relationship through education and promotion of humane treatment of animals.

To achieve our goals, we will build a brand new center called the KAPES center, from which all programs and services of the KAPES initiative will be offered working through humanitarian, instructional, legal and legislative means in delivering these programs and services. The Korean-language site is located here:
