Mark has always been fond of animals. He’s been a dog parent to Coco, a Maltese puppy with fellow Got7 and Foxline member Youngjae since their early days but Youngjae has taken over full custody of Coco since he moved out of their dorm.
In 2019, Mark started caring for another puppy named Milo who keeps him company as he lives on his own. He proudly shows off his new pet in his solo Vlives, video calls with fans and even in his live streams on Huya, a Chinese gaming platform.
Our main work is to educate and disseminate information concerning animal welfare, animal care, animal control, and other animal-related concerns.
PAWS campaigns actively against animal cruelty and pet neglect, including activities like dogfights, horsefights, and wild animals being used for entertainment.
PAWS also runs an animal shelter called PARC (PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center). It currently houses over 300 cats and dogs rescued from cruelty or neglect. Here, these animals are rehabilitated in the hope of finding them new homes and a second chance at a good life.
There is also a low-cost clinic that provides veterinary services to the indigent community, including spay and neuter (kapon).
