Dogs Saved From Meat Farm Up for Adoption in South Jersey

A South Jersey animal shelter is putting three dogs saved from a South Korean meat farm up for adoption.

“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.”

The dogs are Joey, a 1-year-old golden retriever; Liberty a 1- to 2-year-old Siberian husky; and Tisha, a 2- to 3-year-old Japanese mastiff.

“We are extremely fortunate to be able to rescue these dogs, provide medical attention and care and find them loving homes,” said CCAS executive director Vicki Rowland.

Joey, Liberty & Tasha are up for adoption at the Camden County Animal Shelter after being saved from a dog meat farm.

The dogs were rescued as part of an international effort to end Korean farming of dogs for meat, said a news release from Camden County.

The rescued dogs and many other animals are up for adoption at the Camden County Animal Shelter at 125 County House Road in Blackwood, New Jersey. For more info on these dogs or any other animals call (856) 401-1300 ext. 102.
