In this virtual-reality/360º video, see the sad reality across South Korea, as many as two million dogs suffer for months or even years being intensively bred on farms in small, metal, barren cages with little food or water, left exposed to the harsh elements. They receive no attention or veterinary care. Bred and raised for profit, they are eventually sold and slaughtered, usually by electrocution, for human consumption.
HSI is working with farmers who express an interest in leaving the cruel trade behind them to close down dog meat farms and fly the dogs to freedom in the USA, UK and Canada. Through a network of partner shelters, the dogs are prepared for adoption into loving homes. They serve as ambassadors to help raise awareness of this issue. Back in South Korea, we work with the farmers to help them move on, either by transitioning to new humane livelihoods such as water delivery or vegetable farming, or in the case of very elderly and infirm farmers, retiring from work. In both cases, permanently closing their dog meat farms saves not only the dogs we rescue at the time but also prevents many hundreds more from ever being born into the cruel trade in the future, while at the same time demonstrating to the Korean government that phasing out the industry is a feasible solution.
