A group of dogs who were living in squalid conditions and getting ready to be eaten on a dog meat farm in South Korea, have been saved and are finally safe in the United Kingdom to meet their new families, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Humane Society International (HSI) organized the rescue mission in South Korea. The pups were kept by the dozens in cramped cages, outside, in 10 degree weather, and got to roam free for the first time in their lives when they got to England. Wendy Higgins, from HSI, said:
It’s quite an emotional day for them and for all of us who have been involved with closing the farm down and saving these dogs. Today marks the start of the rest of their lives.
HSI managed to close down the farm and save each one of the 200 dogs. In recent weeks, readers of the Daily Mirror contacted the newspaper to find out how they can help or adopt the dogs that were on their way to the U.K.
