Thank you to our friends at Sean Casey Animal Rescue for taking these beautiful Dogo Argentino puppies from our Korean rescue team! We are so grateful and blessed to have such great friends in the NYC rescue community ~ we made the cover of the Brooklyn Paper today!
Thousands of South Korean slaughterhouses butcher the animals annually. In 2016, 240,000 pooches were killed according to a report in the Guardian, but some estimates put the number of deaths closer to 2 million each year.
“It’s important to rescue these dogs because of the torture that’s involved in the process of slaughtering them,” said Gina Lori, owner of Korean K9 Rescue. “The people who consume dog meat and the butchers who kill the dogs believe that the more the dog suffers, and the more the dog is tortured, the higher the adrenaline level in the meat that’s produced.”
