    Dogs rescued from Korean dog meat farm transported to California

    [​IMG]
    NOVATO, Calif. -- After lifetimes spent in small, filthy crowded cages on a South Korean dog meat farm, dozens of dogs can now spend the rest of their lives in loving homes, CBS San Francisco reports.

    The dogs are part of an international rescue effort by Humane Society International (HSI) in partnership with Emergency Placement Partners East Bay SPCA, Marin Humane Society and Sacramento SPCA.



    The dogs were kept in horrific conditions -- exposed to the elements. HSI is trying to eradicate the South Korean meat trade at the source by conducting raids on trucks headed for slaughter, and working with farmers to agree to stop breeding the animals.

    The dogs began arriving in the Bay Area March 16. The final 15 were delivered to the SPCA's Mission Campus in San Francisco, Thursday.

    After a brief quarantine, they will be evaluated, spayed and neutered, treated for any medical issues, and made available for adoption.

    Marin Human Society will be carefully screening adopters. Because the dogs come from such difficult circumstances, they will require a specific type of adopter and home. It will be at least two weeks before adoptions are possible.

    If you are interested in providing a home for one of these animals, go to the MHS website and fill out an application at MarinHumaneSociety.org.

    Imagine if people came from foreign countries and tried to stop, cows, pigs, chickens, from getting slaughter...We would go nuts.

    i realize how strongly americans cling to their steak, pork and lamb chops (although i've given all of that up)the thought of cats and dogs being led to slaughter makes me sick.
    not all societies and cultures are equal (as obama says). if we can influence other cultures to do the right thing, why not????
