A dog rescue based in the U.S. committed to continuing their mission of saving dogs from the slaughterhouses of the Korean dog-meat markets and flying them to safety and homes here in the States. In an exclusive interview, the founder of Y-not Save a Sam Rescue, Yvette Nielsen, details the exciting story of how a pair of purebred dogs, a Great Pyrenees and a German Shepherd, were whisked out of Seoul, South Korea, two weeks and flown into San Francisco International Airport in California, where they were met with open arms by a pair local rescues.
Y-not, the rescue based in Utah, has an "agent" in place in South Korea (SKR), who we will refer to as "Jane", who risks her own life each time one if these missions of mercy are executed. Jane enters the holding areas in SKR pens where the dogs are held before they are hung by their paws, skinned alive and slaughtered. Jane videotapes the dogs in the pens, as well as taking still shots, and sends these photos to Y-not. Although Y-not's mission is "to rescue and find loving homes for Samoyeds, regardless of age, health, or geography," they will not hesitate to help other dogs in these horrific situations.
