A ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴏᴋᴇɴ dog cried as he realized his time was running out. But his heroes arrived just in time to prevent him from becoming a cup of soup as a result of the meat market.
Nowadays a lot of people view pets such as dogs and cats as their best friends and most loyal companions. For most people, even the very thought of eating their pets sounds disgusting and simply speaking—amoral. However, some countries in the world, especially in Asia, are still passively practicing ᴄʀᴜᴇʟ businesses such as dog farms.
Unfortunately, most Asian countries (even in the year 2021) do not have straightly set laws ꜰᴏʀʙɪᴅᴅɪɴɢ the sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀ of dogs for food, but as of recently, a lot of new measures and regulations have been put in place trying to prevent such unethical farms from actively existing and exploiting animals for meat in ʙʀᴜᴛᴀʟ ways.
There are also a lot of active organizations that are doing life-saving work for animals all across the world, and one of them is known as NGO HSI (Humane Society International). As of recently, Humane Society International has been actively working in South Korea by running a campaign and trying to sᴀᴠᴇ over 70 canines from a dog farm.
A dog was seen crying as it was ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ. The dog cried for all it had been through as well as relieved to know it was sᴀᴠᴇᴅ. He was kept in a filthy cage with other people of his type. All with the same fate: ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ and the subsequent commercialization of their meat for human consumption.
“These dogs really needed our help because they would have been ᴇᴜᴛʜᴀɴɪᴢᴇᴅ by the authorities without a ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ plan. We knew we had to act fast to sᴀᴠᴇ them,” Nara Kim, HSI/Korea’s campaign manager said in a statement.
“These dogs were in a pitiful state, skinny and ꜰʀɪɢʜᴛᴇɴᴇᴅ and existing in ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ conditions. It was sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ to see the sʟᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀ area on site too with abandoned electrocution equipment and knives.
“I am horrified to think how many dogs ʟᴏsᴛ their lives there. The sooner we can end the dog meat industry, the sooner we can see an end to such pitiful scenes of animal sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀɪɴɢ,” Kim, who was one of the rescuers, added.
Fortunately, these fluffy animals, who have been taken to a veterinary facility, will only receive positive news from now on. They will begin therapy to regenerate their physical and emotional integrity as they wait for a family that will treat them with love and respect.
