In general, dogs are arguably treated worse in Asia. Notable among it is the ugly underbelly of an international dog meat trade. There are organizations that have taken it upon themselves to counteract that. Ultimately, it’s to get the pooch back to where it was taken from. To finally get them back home.
Dog activists try to work together in order to maximize taking canines out of untenable situations. When their original home can’t be found, they even find homes for them literally on the other side of the world.
A particular canine aid organization started from someone’s desperation of continuing to see illegal dog trade horror stories. In 2016, its founder left the corporate world’s suit & tie & “never looked back”. Although the 2003 woman’s world cup had put the dog meat trade spotlight on Korea, their work started in China.
fast-forward to ‘post-pandemic’ 2021. Just in the 1st quarter, over 250 canines have been saved. The last group to make it to America before this story broke for the 1st time, arrived in the so-called world’s capital (New York), March 8.
But it’s not just for a specific group. We all have a part to play. Whether passively (without encouraging efforts, affirming these activities in writing & verbally). Or actively (letting a voice be heard through the use of any one of our social platforms. Most likely it’ll be digital.
But whenever a plug can be inserted in person on the occasion of an on-site interview, seize the opportunity. Some may think that it’s a cultural thing & we’re not to be out to shame ethnically. Not so with dogs.
Canines have transcended to now be seen, regardless of culture, as needful human companions. It’s a constant source of health-releasing oxytocin for humans. & by petting them, we also return the favor.
All things considered, it’s a win-win situation.
