RAISING ANIMALS IS A PLEASURE FOR MANY PEOPLE,
BUT IF YOU WANT TO HAVE PETS, ESPECIALLY ON POST, THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
BEFOREHAND. THERE ARE CERTAIN GARRISON RULES THAT THEY
HAVE TO FOLLOW, THEY HAVE TO REGISTER THEIR ANIMALS AT THE YONGSAN VETERINARY CLINIC,
FIRST OF ALL, AND SECOND OF ALL THERE ARE RULES AGAINST JUST ABANDONING PETS HERE ON
POST. PEOPLE THAT HAVE PETS HERE ARE FINANCIALLY
RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM, AND THEY’RE ETHICALLY RESPONSIBLE TO CARE FOR THEM WHILE THEY’RE
HERE. THAT ALSO APPLIES TO ANIMALS WHO MAY NOT BE
OF THE FURRY VARIETY. SAME GOES FOR SMALL MAMMALS OR SMALL REPTILES
LIKE TURTLES, HAMSTERS, THAT SORT OF THING YOU CAN’T JUST RELEASE THOSE INTO THE WILD
ONE, THEY’RE NOT NATIVE TO KOREA IN GENERAL, AND TWO, THERE ARE OTHER LAWS AND REGULATIONS
THROUGH KOREA ABOUT JUST RELEASING, SAY TURTLES, INTO THE WILD.
WE ASKED THE TURTLES WHAT THEY THOUGHT. THEY DECLINED TO COMMENT.
YOU MIGHT THINK OWNING A PET IS A SIMPLE THING BUT IT TAKES A LOT OF RESPONSIBILITY. ARMY
