BREAKING: A city court in South Korea has ruled that killing dogs for meat is illegal, in a move that could be a game-changer for the campaign to see an end to the country’s dog meat trade.
-
The dog meat trade exists in South Korea in legal limbo, having been neither declared explicitly legal nor illegal. But this court ruling could signal a change of direction, and comes just a month before the start of the Bok Nals, the hottest days of summer when dog meat soup consumption increases.
-
We are analyzing the ruling carefully to determine the wider implications of the court’s decision and are hopeful that this could be a defining moment in South Korea’s journey towards ending the dog meat trade.

Yulin Update: 135 dogs rescued from a slaughterhouse are now safe and recovering from their traumatic past. Thankfully, Chinese activists with whom HSI has worked with for many years were able to help rescue these animals just days before the start of the annual #yulindogmeatfestival .

These dogs have witnessed and endured severe cruelty, and they're in desperate need of physical and emotional care. 65 of the rescued dogs are being housed in an HSI-funded shelter and they're receiving critical medical attention, along with fresh food and water.

Animal Rescue Teams from HSI Mexico and HSI Latin America raced to Guatemala to offer emergency aid to animals following the deadly Volcano de Fuego eruptions. The teams took medicine, vaccinations and surgical equipment to save and treat as many animals as possible in the worst-affected areas, including ground zero. They'll continue rescuing survivors and providing relief in the coming days.

Caroline was used as a breeding machine on this South Korean dog meat farm. Having never seen affection, she’s terrified of people. Thanks to your support, Caroline will soon be far away from her miserable past and will slowly learn to trust again.

She’ll receive TLC and training at our @hsi_canada facility and we’re hopeful that she will make a full recovery. Our experienced team is committed to rehabilitating and rehoming rescued dogs, like Caroline, who have experienced severe trauma on these farms. 💔

Our Animal Rescue Team found sweet Kate alone and isolated, with terrible scars across her muzzle. Kate was most likely a victim of a bad dog fight, and although she has suffered a great deal, she continues to wag her tail and show affection. She doesn’t know it yet, but soon she’ll be on her way to safety! ✈️🙏

UPDATE: Our Animal Rescue Team landed safely in South Korea and are at the dog meat farm today preparing to remove all 50+ dogs! 👏 We’ll be going LIVE from the farm tonight between 8:30-9:30PM EST so please stay tuned to this page to watch the rescue unfold! ❤️
