Dog With Crooked Legs Rescued From South Korean Meat Farm Is Living A Happy Life Now.
We may call dogs our best friends, but it seems painfully obvious that if dogs could talk, they'd totally feel the exact opposite about us, at least some of them would. Unfortunately, not everyone takes the time to appreciate how loyal and selfless these creatures truly are. In fact, one dog, who was raised in a slaughter house, had just about given up hope, but then, something amazing happened, and now you wouldn't believe the life he has.
Could you ever imagine eating your beloved pet for dinner? No, right?
Unfortunately, in certain parts of the world, dog meat is a kind of delicacy, so rather than seeing them as a friendly pet, they're subjected to cruelty and abuse in a slaughter house, until their eventual end.
Kelly O'Meara's heart broke whenever she visited a slaughterhouse in Yesan, South Korea.
In this so called farm, dogs were being raised in deplorable conditions, where they would eventually be slaughtered for their meat, and their way of life was anything but ideal.
According to O'Meara, the pooches lived in small, elevated metal cages with bars.
O'Meara, who's the senior director of companion animals and engagement for Humane Society International (HSI), knew these dogs had no reason to live within their confined space.
Winter in this farm must have been absolute torture because the cages were made of metal.
Now try and imagine what metal feels like in the winter where the temperatures are absolutely freezing. Even with a dog's natural coat, the sensation must have been horrible.
As of May of this year, the HSI has managed to negotiate with the meat farm's owner.
He has agreed to shut down the farm and claims he will never sell dog meat again, and in exchange, the HSI will set him on a path to a brand new career, possibly growing crops.
