Guardians of Rescue to Take on Korean Dog Meat Industry

Guardians of Rescue to Take on Korean Dog Meat Industry

In America, we tend to think of man as dog’s best friend. In fact, it’s estimated that there are over 70 million of them kept as pets throughout the country. But on the other side of the world in South Korea, it’s a whole other tragic story. There, dog meat is considered a delicacy and it’s estimated that over 2.5 million dogs per year are served up in the meat trade, amounting to around 100,000 tons being consumed per year. The estimated value of their meat trade is around $2 billion, but it’s not stopping an American animal rescue group from stepping up to help make positive changes.

“It’s a tragic story for our best friends over in South Korea,” explains Robert Misseri, president of Guardians of Rescue, an animal rescue organization. “They are suffering from mass slaughter and being served up in over 20,000 restaurants in that country. We plan to do what we can to help the dogs.”
