SMITHTOWN, NY – (October 6, 2015) –According to the Korean Animal Rights Advocates, approximately 2.5 million dogs are killed each year and around 100,000 tons consumed annually. Every day, thousands of dogs are transported from horrific dog meat farms to slaughter at the local markets for dinner in South Korea. The South Koreans’ culture believes that dog meat makes men more virile and strong. The more the dog is beaten prior to death, the more tender the meat. Guardians of Rescue, a nation-wide animal rescue organization, is teaming up with Save the Korean Dogs to step in and rescue as many innocent dogs as possible from a horrific death.
“No dog deserves to live or die like this,” says Robert Misseri, Guardians of Rescue founder and president. “We plan to do whatever it takes to save as many as we can. The cultural beliefs in South Korea consider dog meat a delicacy. It is beyond our comprehension that this exists. We are campaigning against this cruel, barbaric slaughter of mans best friend.”
Guardians of Rescue has teamed up with Nami Kim of Save the Korean Dogs, to save innocent dogs from being abused, tortured and boiled for soup. In the past, Guardians of Rescue have been a powerful force of opposition against the dog meat trade in South Korea.
Now, they are planning to save a mother dog and her pups from the sad fate thousands of dogs face. Tera and her three puppies are just four in a sea of doomed dogs, farmed for meat.
Guardians of Rescue is seeking donations to continue their campaign, “Real Men Don’t Eat Dog!”
“We are trying to raise funds to get these four dogs to our shelter partner, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue on Long Island,” says Misseri. “The flight to JFK airport is $2,000… money well spent to save this momma and babies from being boiled alive. We are asking everyone to please donate to the cause. Tera and her puppies deserve a happy life and this is a step forward in helping thousands of South Korean dogs.”
Guardians of Rescue provides assistance to animals out on the streets, helping to rescue them, provide medical care, food and shelter, and find foster-home placements. They are also instrumental in helping military members with their pets, and to provide service dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
