About 1.2 to 2 million dogs are consumed annually in Korea. The Humane Society International is working hard to put a stop to the horrible dog meat trade. They were successful in working out a deal with a South Korean farmer in which the farmer agreed to stop raising dogs for their meat and just grow crops instead. Twenty three dogs were rescued from his dog meat farm and they are now at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria in Virginia. These dogs will be monitored and treated until they are ready for adoption.[youtube id=”iUSGzkzBquk”]
I’m so glad these dogs got a second chance in life! Let’s help these dogs recover and find a new home! Visit the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria in Virginia‘s website to donate and read more about this.
