'Nabiya Saranghae' engages in activities such as rescue, treatment, temporary adoption protection, and neutering of stray cats in order to make people and stray cats live a beautiful world together. They are also doing a project called 'Project Hope' for mistreated, wounded abandoned cats and dogs to be cured and helping them find a new family and home.
