Korean Dogs Rescued at ACS

ACS Teams with the HSUS to Rescue More Dogs From Meat Farms in S.Korea

Animal Care Sanctuary continued its lifesaving partnership with the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International by taking in 10 dogs – including a mother with four pups – that were rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea.

The group was the first of HSUS’s group of 171 rescues to be placed with an emergency placement partner. They’re of all shapes, colors and sizes, but prior to being rescued, they shared the same fate of certain death, whether through slaughter or neglect at the farm. So far, Humane Society International has saved 2,000 dogs from these meat farms.

“The dogs were locked in barren metal cages without water or proper food, living in squalid conditions,” HSUS stated. “On one of the farms, many of the dogs were suffering from severe malnutrition as well as painful skin diseases, and were found huddled next to the lifeless bodies of their dead cage mates who had apparently starved to death. On another farm, the dogs had been abandoned and risked being euthanized after the farmers running the facility had moved away following a demolition order by local officials.”

Since many of these canines have never known kindness or love, most of them are extremely timid, shy and scared. The ACS staff is working with these troubled dogs to try to prepare them for forever homes, but ultimately is the love provided by an adopting family that will really bring them out of their shells.

Animal Care Sanctuary is extremely proud of its continued partnership with HSUS and HSI to help rescue dogs from inhumane situations all around the world, which would not be possible without the dedicated staff of all the organizations as well as the unwavering support of the wonderful communities who donate time and resources to help animals in need.
