‘Our team is eager to see these wonderful dogs get the love and care that they need.’
The Humane Society International does some tough work, as they did recently in closing down a dog meat farm that also operated as a puppy mill in South Korea, the 14th such closure to date.
“These dogs have been surviving in appalling conditions, in barren, filthy cages, with inadequate food and water and almost no veterinary care or human contact. Our team is eager to see these wonderful dogs get the love and care that they need,” Ewa Demianowicz, senior campaign manager for HSI/Canada, said in a press release.
But the staff and volunteers of HSI/Canada and Friends of HSI also get to welcome the rescued animals, as they did on Thursday in Montreal, where 37 of the 200 rescued animals are being treated and cleaned up before they are moved on to partner placement organizations and forever homes.
Montreal Gazette photographer Dave Sidaway was on hand when the dogs arrived and took the above video.
