In Korea, buying, selling, and eating dog meat is legal. Dogs are raised in dog meat farms so they can be slaughtered for their meat. The only hope that these poor dogs have are organizations like the Humane Society International and Aniband.
Aniband is a non-profit animal rescue organization established in Seoul,Korea. Their mission is to prevent cruelty to animals, provide shelter and care for homeless animals, and promote public awareness about animal welfare issues.
Aniband, together with Doggie Protective Services (DPS Rescue), have saved dogs from dog meat farms in Korea. They have spent thousands of dollars so these dogs can be saved and so they can start a new life in the United States.
In the video below, you will see seven of the dogs they rescued taking their first steps of freedom in U.S. soil. It was such a beautiful and happy moment that the rescuers can’t help but become emotional and cry with tears of joy.
