Despite these staggering numbers, a very small percentage of the country’s citizens actually participate in the practice, and many people there are trying to stop it.

She also helps to shut down the farms altogether and find new jobs for the former dog butchers. Her ultimate goal is to put an end to the vicious cycle. Animal Humane Society Among the 300 dogs she rescued recently were 10 tiny puppies, only a few months old, who desperately needed new, loving homes. Wanting to find the best possible homes for the puppies, Kim got in contact with the Animal Humane Society in Minnesota.
