Thanks to animal advocates, another dog meat farm in South Korea had recently closed, permanently. Because of that, many dog lives were saved, including 196 dogs that are now safe in animal advocates’ hands in America. But there is one problem left; these dogs are looking for forever homes.
Animal shelters across the country have stepped up to find a forever home for every dog involved in this rescue. The Humane Society International was able to recruit shelters that offered temporary space for each pup.
The shelters recruited to temporarily take care of these lovely dogs include SPCA Cincinnati (Ohio), Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (Pennsylvania), Humane Society of Calvert County (Maryland), Homeward Trails Animal Rescue (Virginia), and Petey and Friends (Maryland).
All of the rescued dogs arrived in the country safe and sound. They are adjusting to the new and better environment, an environment where they are safer and happier. Once these dogs have rested and recovered, they will be ready for a forever home with families that will love them.
Because of the current pandemic, bringing these dogs to America was a little more challenging. But the HSI was persistent in getting these dogs to a safe environment, so even though travel regulations tried to stand in their way, they were able to bring them to America.
And for another good news, the dog meat industry in South Korea is dying. According to a recent poll, 84% of the participants said that they never eat dog meat, and 59% support banning dog meat trade in the country. We hope this progresses further and ban all dog meat trades all over the world.
