HSI plans to go to the South Korean dog farm next week to pick up the canines. After which they will send the dogs to various countries including the US, Canada, the UK, and the Netherlands for recovery and adoption.

"This will be the 13th South Korean dog meat farm closed by HSI, bringing the total number of dogs saved to nearly 1,600."
