At the request of DoVE Project, an American organization that also campaigns for the end of dog meat and tries to find them homes in the US, CARE rescued 18 dogs from a dog farm in Beolgyo in South Jeolla Province in the early hours of Wednesday 27th of February.
I suspect you’ve heard it before and maybe even thought it yourself; factory farm workers are evil, sub-humans that enjoy torturing animals. They choose to get up every morning to beat, kick, abuse, terrorize and slaughter other defenseless sentient beings. Really? Do you think that this is really what motivates them to get out of bed every morning?
Taepyeong Slaughterhouse in Seongnam City, which started in the 1990s, was the largest dog slaughterhouse in South Korea. At least 80,000 dogs every year were brutally slaughtered there, the meat being distributed throughout the country. Today, though, it is finally gone.
On September 12th, 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the ‘Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act 2017.’
Here, we have updates on a number of dogs that you (Yes, you! You know who you are!) helped rescue by supporting both our activities to manage the situation and to reimburse the vet fees of the volunteers.
