About a month ago I got an email from a couple in Korea. They asked if I could help them to rescue the dogs held in a dog meat farm near where they live. Every day they pass the dog farm and hear horrifying cries from the dogs. They have asked animal organizations and activists in Korea for help but no one has replied.
Many people say that there are so many dog meat farms in Korea. You cannot save every dog you see, so don’t bother. Well, yes we cannot save all dogs suffering in Korea but for those particular dogs crying out in horror right in front of you, how can you not step up? Isn’t it worth a try?
After exchanging several emails, I decided to meet the couple and discuss the possibility of rescuing the dogs. Finally I met them yesterday in Korea. They were very compassionate, humble, and courageous people. Their efforts to save the dogs deeply touched my heart.
At the moment, there are 25 dogs and about 8 goats at the farm. As you can see in the video, many of the dogs are very young. The good news is that the land owner has ordered that the farm be closed down by August. The challenge for us now is to rescue these dogs before the farmer sells them to the meat market. We are making a plan to rescue these dogs but need your support.
The farm is located right beside trails and people walking on the trails everyday hear horrifying cries of the dogs. However, it was so surreal for me to notice that no one stops or asks what is going on with the dogs in the dog meat farm, even those walking with their pet dogs. How ironic.
