CHHS Animal Rescue Team Participates in First International Rescue
As an official Emergency Placement Partner with the Humane Society of the United States, the CHHS Animal Rescue Team has been called upon to provide assistance in puppy mill raids, cruelty and hoarding cases, and disaster response. On Saturday, October 1, 2106, we were honored to have been chosen as a partner in our first international rescue. CHHS has taken in 10 amazing canine survivors from an unlicensed and illegal dog meat harvesting farm in South Korea. These companion animals will finally get to experience what it means to be a cherished and beloved member of a loving, forever family.
When can the dogs be seen?
The Korean dogs may be viewed by the general public beginning Monday, Oct. 10th from 10am-4pm. If desired, a customer can request a dog be taken out of the kennel for a meet-and-greet, a walk, or to the public play yard.
What is the adoption process?
After completion of the adoption application and an interview by a CHHS Team member, if the application is approved the customer can pay an on-hold $80 adoption fee. The on-hold fee is non-refundable. The approved adoption application and payment of the fee guarantees the owner will receive that dog after their spay/neuter.
A waiting list can be created, if necessary, for a dog in case the first adoption falls through.
When can they go home?
The Korean dogs will be spayed/neutered on Monday, Nov. 7th. They will be available to go home on the afternoon (between noon-4pm) of the following day, Tuesday, Nov. 8th.
