Humane Society International has been on a mission to shut down these Korean slaughterhouses, where dogs are to be slaughtered for human consumption. Although the demand for dog meat has gone down in Korea, meat from two million dogs is still eaten there every year. According to the Humane Society, an estimated 17,000 dog meat farms still operate in South Korea.
Christensen‘s two mastiffs will be available for adoption through Rover Rescue once they are healthy and have adapted well to society. The dogs arrived in Chicago on July 26, so Christensen expects it will be at least a month from when the dogs arrived until the dogs will be ready.
“People who are interested in meeting the dogs are welcome to come to the farm to visit with them or just come here to help us socialize them with different people,” Christensen said. Epona Farm is located at 1N806 Francis Road in Maple Park.
