Praise Rehabilitation Center for Saving Dogs from Meat Trade


Target: Heather Cammisa, President and CEO for St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center

Goal: Applaud animal welfare center and ASPCA for taking in and rehabilitating rescue dogs from the Asian dog meat trade.

Recently, two of 23 dogs that were rescued from a South Korea meat farm were taken to St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey. These dogs endured trauma and unbearable horrors during their time at the meat farm from which they were rescued, and are in need of decent rehabilitative measures. Under the care of the animal welfare center in New Jersey, these dogs will be receiving great care and treatment.

The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation center at St. Hubert’s, which is where the dogs were transferred, established its program only around a year ago. It is the first facility to dedicate itself to providing rehabilitation for displaced dogs. Their aim is to help end the dog meat trade through assisting dog meat farmers’ transition to more humane careers. Thanks to the center’s efforts, a South Korean farmer agreed to relinquish his dogs, including the two recently-transferred dogs Robin and Kaya. Furthermore, the farmer transitioned from working in the dog meat trade to blueberry farming.

The Asian dog meat trade is rampant in many areas of Asia, including China and Korea, and dogs caught up in this trade are often stolen from the streets, boiled, and skinned alive to be used in the meat trade. These dogs are oftentimes kept in cramped, dirty cages and are starved and beaten until they are finally killed for their meat. Fortunately, dogs are occasionally rescued from their demise and sent to rehabilitation centers to receive treatment for the horrors they encountered. By signing the petition below, you are applauding the efforts of those involved in this program in helping save dogs’ lives and assisting dog meat farmers in transitioning to different careers.


Dear Heather Cammisa,

The dog meat trade in Asia is a rampant issue, and numerous dogs’ precious lives are lost every year due to the consumption of their meat. The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center a St. Hubert’s is doing amazing work in helping to decrease the dog meat farmers’ participation in the trade and rescuing and rehabilitating dogs from the trade. Thank you for your decision to take in the two dogs that were rescued from the dog meat trade in South Korea. Such acts of kindness go a long way, not only for the rescued dogs, but also for raising awareness to the public.

Thanks to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center a St. Hubert’s, Robin and Kaya will have a great chance at living a full and happy life. I look forward to hearing more great things that come from the program.

    Omg we have got to work together to save these wonderful loving pets from the freaks that EAT them…The Asian communities need to be looked at closer..I remember when living back home in calis0f. After the vietnam war ended and the boat people arrived the government built brand new houses for them in a housing development in Northridge,CA. After they moved in, like right away our family pets were coming up missing. The police investigated it and in their freezer and refrigerator was the dead pets from near by homes.. Some were stolen right from their backyards.. I forget what happened but it was stopped..we also have to stop the Chinese dog leather, dog and cat fur and meat trades.. I have a petition on asking for a national boycott of Canada until they stop the dog and cat fur trade and the yearly slaughter of baby harp seals..boycott China and Europe where these trades are worldwide.. Please boycott all these 3..check labels and sign my petition
