|Dogs saved from Korean meat trade hell safe in UK and ready for new lives
18th Jan 2017 - Daily Mirror by Russell Myers - For the first time since leaving the desolate farm, where temperatures had plummeted to -10 C in recent weeks, the pups were allowed to roam free
Dogs rescued from the hell of a Korean dog farm have safely arrived in the UK ready to begin their new lives. Six dogs we reported on last month after we found them living in squalid conditions today touched down at London’s Heathrow airport.
After a gruelling 24-hour journey they disembarked a British Airways flight at 7am and were taken to the airport’s Animal Reception Centre. Two more lucky pups, who had been living alongside the six and dozens more in cramped metal cages, also passed medical checks and were cleared to join the others on their journey to London. For the first time since leaving the desolate farm, where temperatures had plummeted to -10 C in recent weeks, the eight pups were allowed to roam free and take in their new-found freedom.
Wendy Higgins from Humane Society International (HSI), which run the dog rescue programme, said: “We are just thrilled to have these dogs back to the UK. It’s quite an emotional day for them and for all of us who have been involved with closing the farm down and saving these dogs. “Today marks the start of the rest of their lives.” READ FULL STORY

3rd November 2017 - Puppy who escaped from dog meat restaurant in Vietnam starts new life in Warwick - A STRAY puppy who escaped from a restaurant menu in Vietnam has found a loving home 6,000 miles away in Warwick. At six-months-old Grace was captured and taken to a dog meat restaurant where she was destined for someone’s dinner plate. But the pup managed to escape by breaking her chain and running off, before being taken into the care of Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue (VAAR). And when 32-year-old Chantal Attfield visited Vietnam to carry out research for a conservation project, she had no idea she would be taking a new friend home with her. The agricultural specialist was in South East Asia with fiancé Michael Williams when they stopped by the rescue in Hoi An and met ‘clever and gorgous’ Grace. She said: “Vietnam kills over 5million dogs a year for the dog meat trade and Grace was captured and taken to a dog meat restaurant......READ MORE
