The Humane Society rescued Harriet, a three-year-old Korean Jindo dog. This dog was doomed to be killed in a dog meat farm in South Korea.
2 million dogs a year are slaughtered and eaten in South Korea. It’s heartbreaking to hear about these types of stories.
The dogs suffer horribly in these dog meat factory farms. Illness and injuries go untreated. Deaths go unnoticed.
Humane Society International is going out, finding and closing these farms, and saving the poor dogs in them.
Volunteers went into this dog meat farm in Wonju, South Korea, shut it down, and rescued 200 dogs along with Harriet. They were transferred to shelters in the US, Canada, and the UK
Harriet is recovering in Tampa Bay, Florida, with 14 other dogs.
Volunteers from the Humane Society said, “Even though our Korean pups are doing well and beginning to adjust, they are still suffering from the horror they endured.”
