Eight dogs that were rescued from an illegal meat farm in South Korea have found a new, safe home in Spokane.

The Humane Society of the United States brought back more than 500 dogs from South Korea. The organization reached out to SpokAnimal, which was glad to take in the pups.

The dogs have been sterilized and implanted with microchips, but some of them need time to recover before they’re ready for adoption.

“They were very tired when they got here,” said Dori Peck, Executive Director of SpokAnimal. “They had a long journey. Out of the eight that we had gotten, about four of them were ready to be adopted. They’re pretty friendly and pretty ready; the other four are pretty quiet and shy and they’re going to need a little more TLC to get ready to b adopted.”

The dogs are available for an adoption fee anywhere from $200-275.
