TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Dogs rescued from a Korean dog meat farm will be available for adoption at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay beginning at noon on Friday.
Billy, Banjo, Bambi, Alphie, Jenna and Zoe are ready to find their new homes.
Those interested in adopting the dogs must go to the shelter. Adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Humane Society said that the dogs have specific needs and require a level of care that may be too much for some families. Adoptions will be approved or denied based on the discretion of staff.
“You can see there’s this golden dog inside there. But, everything is new,” said trainer Glen Hatchell.
The dogs just went through four weeks of training in order to help them cope with the stresses they endured in Asia and to show them how to adapt to life with caring people.
Earlier this month, two dogs were adopted by a Humane Society worker and a volunteer.
The dogs were rescued by the Humane Society International. The organization went through Asia and rounded up the dogs, saving their lives from slaughter. The hope is to snuff out the dog meat trade altogether.
All adoptable pets can be seen on the Humane Society of Tampa Bay website.
