Three dogs who were rescued from a South Korean dog meat farm are available for adoption at the Camden County Animal Shelter in Gloucester Township.

The dogs were saved as part of an international effort to encourage Korean farmers to pursue other economic activities and eliminate the practice of farming dogs for consumption.

“These dogs have overcome insurmountable odds, and have traveled a great distance to find someone to provide them with the love and care they deserve,” said Freeholder Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Animal Shelter. “These dogs, along with other animals, are waiting for you to provide them with their forever home.”

All three dogs were provided with veterinary care to enter the United States and have received behavior rehabilitation to ensure that they are suitable for adoption.

Tisha, a 2- to 3-year-old Japanese mastiff, is described as people-friendly but unsure of new dogs. She is good on a leash and is currently receiving medication for pain management due to an old injury to her back leg.
