HES bringing dogs rescued from meat market to Chattanooga foster homes

From Local 3 News: The Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga will receive 10 dogs rescued from an overseas dog meat market on Thursday.


The farm in South Korea was shut down earlier this month as part of a Humane Society International campaign, freeing almost 200 dogs and puppies, HES said on Wednesday. The animals were rescued and flown to the U.S. for placement.


According to HES, the dogs coming to Chattanooga will be assessed then placed directly in foster homes.

If you are interested in donating, or want to apply for adoption for these dogs, visit heschatt.org/marketdogs.
