    Forty-six dogs that were to end up in the plates in South Korea have arrived in Canada and heading to shelters in Quebec, where they will be put up for adoption as early as next Monday.

    After having been seen by a veterinarian in Ontario, dogs are being handed over to SPCA and partners SPA across the province of Quebec. Four dogs extra will go to a rescue group in Ontario. They arrived at Pearson international airport in Toronto last Friday.


    “We are relieved to know that they will soon be placed in loving homes, where they will have the chance to have a happy and healthy life,” says the director general of the Montreal SPCA, Élise Desaulniers.

    The organization Humane Society International (HSI) announced on Wednesday that it had conducted its tenth closing of the factory to meat of dogs to save one of his animals. The organization estimates that in South Korea, 2.5 Million dogs are slaughtered in atrocious conditions for the trade of their meat.

    “I just got back from South Korea and the conditions in the breeding of meat canine were appalling, says the head of the campaign for HSI Canada, Ewa Demianowicz. These poor dogs were closely confined in cages made of wire, with little food and water and no protection from the elements.”

    In total, 170 animals have been rescued from this livestock.
