Two dogs that were headed to slaughter on a dog meat farm in Wonju, South Korea are now safe in Cheyenne.

Black Dog Animal Rescue (BDAR) is working to find loving homes for the dogs, which were part of a group of 250 dogs and puppies rescued by Humane Society International last December.

Britney Wallesch, Executive Director of BDAR, says the dogs, an adult female Jindo mix and a young male Mastiff, are currently in foster care and will receive a full medical and behavioral evaluation before being made available for adoption.

"While the story of these dogs is a fascinating one that we are so grateful to be a part of, we also have many animals in our program that are currently looking for their new homes," said Wallesch.
