It’s hard when you meet someone who isn’t a dog person. Dogs aren’t for everyone — and sure, some people have stories to back their beliefs.
But in general, dogs really are a human’s best friend. And finding the perfect dog at the shelter is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.
Luckily, just around 200 dogs will have a second chance to get that moment. Their lives were saved after being rescued from a dog meat farm in Korea. The popularity of farms like these has gone down tremendously in the past few years. Luckily, these dogs were able to hang on before their farm closed for good.
Currently, a large majority of the dogs are in the Maryland and Washington, DC, area. They’re currently undergoing evaluation, even though most seem to be in good health. From there, they’ll likely travel to other shelters throughout the United States in hopes of finding a forever family. The origin story of these dogs will surely be an interesting one. Families who take in a shelter dog should know that they’re saving a life.
According to WUSA9, dog meat farms still exist in Korea. However, most Koreans would be fine to ban dog meat entirely. In fact, a study shows that 84% of Koreans have never eaten it and aren’t willing to do so. Hopefully, in the future, more factories will also consider shutting down for good.
