Freed dogs are rehomed
12:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
DOGS that could have been dinner arrived safe and sound in Harwich to be picked up by their new owners.
Bailey and Puddles were found when they were being smuggled into Vietnam in a chicken crate with more than 10 other pooches to be used in the illegal dog meat trade.
They were then rescued by the Soi Dog Foundation based in Phuket, Thailand and eventually re-homed to pet lovers in the UK after arriving at Harwich International Port last week.
UK Adoptions Co-Ordinator for the Soi Dog Foundation Carly Jane Evans was relieved that the dogs could be sent to a good home.
“Bailey and Puddles were both destined for someone’s dinner plate but thankfully Soi Dog intercepted the truck they were being smuggled in and they were saved.”
