Marc Ching, founder of the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation and Shannon Keith, founder of ARME (Animal Rescue, Media & Education) have partnered to bring awareness to the dog meat issue plaguing China, South Korea, Thailand and the United States.
Marc Ching has traveled to China and South Korea on three different occasion, saving over 200 dogs from the meat trade. Dogs who are tortured before slaughter, because they believe the adrenaline released during torture, makes the meat more tender. Marc Ching from the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation risks his life to pull these abused souls from darkness. Takes them to vets where they are nursed back to health. Shannon Keith works to find and secure safe transport of the dogs to the United States, where they work together to find them forever homes. When they arrive, there are foster homes lined up for the dogs where they can recover and be socialized until they are ready to be matched with their perfect forever home.
But this is just the beginning. Marc and Shannon are working with authorities in China in order to make it criminal to abuse dogs for the meat trade, and they are doing work here in the U.S. to stop the illegal dog meat trade.
