The dogs in this video were inches away from becoming the victims of South Korea’s dog meat industry. Thankfully, Humane Society International’s (HSI) animal rescue team stepped onto the scene and not only rescued these gorgeous pups, but helped the farm shut its doors for good.
Before rescue, these pups spent their lives in tiny wire cages that lacerated their paws and slowly drove them insane from lack of stimulation, but because of HSI, these dogs will no longer be valued for how much meat the can provide.
This victory is amazing – and what makes it even better is that this is the fourth dog meat farm closure that HSI has made this year! We can’t rest on our laurels, though, as there are still thousands of dogs still at risk for the same fate.
If you’re anything like most westerners, you turn up your nose at the idea of breeding and harvesting dogs for meat. But the sad truth is our meat industry isn’t much different from what was shown here.
