Two dogs rescued from Korean dog meat farm arrive in Cheyenne

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Black Dog Animal Rescue in Cheyenne is part of an international rescue effort for dogs saved from a Korean dog meat farm, May 4. The two dogs arrived today in Cheyenne as part of the Humane Society International's rescue effort in which Britney Wallesch, Executive Director at Black Dog Animal Rescue (BDAR), says 250 dogs were part of the recent rescue. Late last month, ten of those dogs came to Colorado with the Larimer Humane Society reaching out to see if BDAR would be willing to take in two of them. "Humane Society International has been able to go into several of these smaller dog farms and get these farmers to adopt a different livelihood - so they're helping them start up a crop program, or scrap metal business, to replace their livelihood, and then they are taking those dogs and shipping them back to the states," Wallesch said. Wallesch stated the dogs are very under-socialized and have lived very isolated lives by living in tiny cramped cages with no interaction, with minimum food and water - just enough to survive. "They are high maintenance dogs, and they need a lot of intensive care, so by being able to put a few at a time with each organization, it will really help us to give all of our resources to them." Norman and Tamala will go to local foster homes at the end of today after they've been seen by Dr. Tiffany Healey, of the Cottonwood Vet Clinic. "This is the first time we've had dogs come into this program internationally," Wallesch said. *Male Mastiff breed mix named Norman saved from a Korean dog meat farm arrives in Cheyenne, Wyo., May 4.
