Now, for some wonderful news from South Korea. Humane Society International says it has rescued 23 dogs from a dog meat farm where the animals spent their entire lives “in small, crowded cages.” The non-profit documented its efforts on Facebook and its website.
This month’s operation is part of the group’s major ongoing campaign against the dog meat trade in Asia, where it is working with dog meat farmers to help them transition out of the “cruel business.”
The Humane Society said it worked with the farmer to remove the dogs and shutter the operation.
“We also secured an agreement with him to stop raising dogs for food and move permanently to growing crops as a more humane way to make a living,” the Humane Society said.
The dogs are now in the United States, where they will have a second chance at life in new homes.
