Asian Dogs Rescue Allies grew out of our desire to assist as many rescue operations as possible on the ground in Asia. Organizations such as Bo Ai in China and Save Korean Dogs in South Korea work to shut down dog meat farms and stop dog meat festivals. Once animals are saved from being tortured and eaten, these groups need to find safe homes, preferably outside those countries. ADRA works with the Asian rescue organizations to bring dog meat trade (aka DMT dogs) to the United States. After they arrive in the States, the dogs are transported to no kill shelters or to foster homes so that they are ready for forever homes.

Lori has always loved animals and has cared for several special needs dogs using her past nursing experience. In recent years, Lori has become increasingly concerned about rescuing dogs from being tortured and killed in the Chinese dog meat trade. Asian Dogs Rescue Allies was born as Lori worked to rescue Ju Guo, a female who brought seven puppies with her to the States!
