Traveling to South Korea, a team from the Humane Society of the United States didn’t quite know what they’d find. All they knew was that a dog meat farm was located somewhere in the wilderness, and that the situation was dire. Showing up and looking around, they were shocked and appalled by what they encountered.
That’s when they decided to do something heroic.
All of these dogs are expected to go home over the holidays. “Like the hundreds of other dogs we’ve rescued from South Korean dog meat farms this year, we know that adoptive families will welcome these dogs into their homes and make them the companion animals they deserve to be,” said Kelly O’Meara, the organization’s director.
Throw in the fact that the farm’s owner has agreed to shut down the operation, and we’ll call this a major success.
