WHAT IS THE GAME PLAN?
HSI's objective is to find loving forever homes to those dogs, something that they had never experienced before. Sadly, this is true for millions of dogs that are caught in the horrendous meat market.
Many of these animals are stolen, picked up from the streets and bred for the sole purpose of being killed and have their meat sold to restaurants across Asia.
The dogs are born, grow up and live in conditions that are so cruel that it brings many animal lovers to tears; they are grouped and confined to extremely small cages, with barely any room to breathe.
They are also beaten, denied food, water and affection. Although the dog meat consumption is declining in South Korea, there are still thousands of dog farms and factories currently active.
Closing down these places of sadness, cruelty and horror is of utmost importance and everyone could help by making a small donation to one of the 83 charities that are currently fighting the problem.
THESE EVENTS MUST BE BANNED!
In June, the HSI managed to save 135 dogs from being slaughtered at THe Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, held in the Guangxi Region, China.
Chinese activists successfully negotiated the dogs' release and captured shocking footage of the inside of the slaughterhouses, with dogs crammed into bloodied wire cages.
