The staff rescued Hani and her puppies were rescued from a slaughterhouse in Anseong, Gyeonggi Province, that had been operating right across from a police station for 30 years.
In the slaughterhouse, there was a space where dogs had to wait before being slaughtered, and cages where they were shut in to be burned alive by blowtorches.
The dogs were given the carcasses of other dogs to eat, and Hani was so malnourished that she could no longer nurse her puppies.
Tina was one of the puppies we rescued, and she thrived once she was placed in the care of her fosterer.
For 5 months we tried to find new homes for Hani and her puppies, but it was not easy as mixed breed dogs are not popular in South Korea.
We finally found an adopter for Tina in the US, and after a family get together, Tina flew to the US to her new home with her new forever family.
After she arrived safely, we received photos of her with her new family.
