Meet Robin, the last of 50 dogs rescued from a dog meat farm and slaughterhouse in Yongin, South Korea. See the moment he was removed from his barren, metal cage, as he takes his first step toward a new and promising life. He was unsure and didn’t know it at the time, but his life was about to change forever.
“We joined forces with animal protection groups in South Korea on this rescue, to save all 50 dogs from being euthanized after this facility was closed down by authorities. The dogs were found locked up in barren metal cages without water or proper food. Humane Society International/Korea, LIFE, Korean K9 Rescue and Yongin Animal Care Association stepped in and worked together with the local authorities to save all of the dogs. Thanks to our partner groups for their support!” – The Humane Society of the United States
