Dogs rescued in South Korea need home in Camden County

Listen

The Camden County Animal Shelter in South Jersey is hosting three special canines.  

Before their rescue in South Korea, the animals were on their way to becoming meals.

The trio will soon be available for adoption, said Camden County Freeholder Jeff Nash.

“The three dogs that we have are in two weeks of handling and training. They are not ready for adoption just yet,” he said. “I met each of the three dogs, and I have to say they are the sweetest rescues that you would find in any shelter.”

Humane Society International brought about 250 dogs to the U.S. from the South Korean meat farm.  The three in South Jersey have been named Joey, Liberty and Tisha.

“A beautiful golden retriever, a husky and a Japanese mastiff,” Nash said.

And, of course, the shelter has many other dogs and cats also waiting to be adopted.
