We found Bastien locked in a barren cage on a dreadful dog meat farm in Namyangju, South Korea. He had been living in pain for far too long with a severe case of mange left untreated. Sealed away and hidden from the world, he was destined to die for his meat.
Now, there is hope. Our Animal Rescue Team is gearing up to leave and help them, but we still need your support. Today, you can have your gift doubled!
Nara, HSI’s local campaign manager, has been ensuring the care and health of the dogs and is confirming they are receiving nutritious food daily—for the first time in their lives. She has also been monitoring Bastien since he received veterinary treatment for his skin condition, and he’s feeling and looking better and better every day.
But that’s just the start. These rescues take enormous effort and require substantial funding, planning and coordination. Now it’s time to get them to safety.
Your gift will allow us to rescue these dogs, advance our fight against the dog meat trade and support all of our campaigns against cruelty to animals.
