200 dogs rescued from dog meat farm

January 30, 2017

In South Korea, as many as 2 million dogs a year are slaughtered and eaten. They suffer on a daily basis in deplorable conditions on dog meat factory farms.

This is the sixth farm that Humane Society International has closed down. All the dogs we have rescued have been flown to the U.S., UK and Canada because at present in South Korea there is insufficient widespread acceptance of dog adoption, particularly for large-size dogs. There is also a misconception that “meat dogs” are different from “pet dogs”; this is something that we hope to change through public education and our hundreds of adoption stories that clearly show this is not the case.
