Victory! Another dog meat farm closed in South Korea!

From HSI:

Because of your compassion, we rescued more than 130 dogs from a dog meat farm in South Korea last week. They were suffering in some of the worst conditions we’ve ever seen–hungry and terrified–but they won’t ever feel this way again.
