And one brought a sweet surprise with her
By Justyne Yuen-Lee
Humane Society rescued several dogs from dog farms in early January 2017.
The Humane Society International is on a mission to rescue 200 dogs found on a dog farm in South Korea. Airline flights can only carry so many dogs, so the dogs are flown 10 at a time to other places like the UK, America, and Canada to be put up for adoption.
The dogs were found in dirty and overall sad conditions.
People usually line up at shelters to adopt these dogs because of their sad backgrounds.
These dogs were still endearing even though they had been kept in cages.
Hygiene was apparently non-existent and the dogs were left outside and only fed once a day.
The dogs were placed in crates with fresh water.
Dog meat consumption is on a decline in South Korea and usually only older people eat it. However, there are estimated to be at least 17000 dog meat farms still in South Korea.
Rescuers loaded the dogs onto trucks ready to be flown to safer places!
The mayor of Seongnam, Lee Jae-myung, ordered the dog meat section of the market to be shut down and replaced with seafood.
One of the dogs rescued from the meat farm, Toffee gave birth to 9 puppies less than 24 hours after arriving to the US. Welcome to your new home. Toffee and pups!
