We’re LIVE rescuing 55 dogs from a South Korean dog meat farm!
On every farm, we are always surprised to see one or two comparatively “lucky" dogs chained up outside instead of crammed into a wire cage. That’s how we found Walter. Thanks to your support, he’ll soon begin his journey to real freedom.
Meet Bonnie. The only world she's ever known has been her short chain and a piece of cardboard serving as her bed on the floor – but that’s all about to change.
We found these sweet puppies and their mother secluded in darkness – living in cold, damp and wet conditions – with not even a drop of water in their bowls. Thanks to your support, we're on the ground right now and are working to get them off this farm and to safety.
We’re LIVE on the ground in South Korea closing down the seventh dog meat farm!

Last year, HSI/Mexico helped stop the sadistic cruelty of stringing up small animals like piñatas and beating them to death during the annual Kots Kaal Pato fiesta. We can’t allow this inhumane practice to resume. Please, thank the mayor for halting this atrocity and encourage him to resist pressure to reinstate it as a “cherished tradition”: [ Action.hsi.org Link ]
