NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - If you traveled close to 7,000 miles, you'd want to stretch your legs, too. Some dogs that were destined to be killed in the meat trade markets of South Korea have been rescued and brought to New York. They haven't even been here for a week but already their living conditions have improved.
They have a new life thanks to Ruff House Rescue in Freeport, Long Island, and a network of other people around the country fighting to stop the Korean meat trade.
Ruff House raised over $7,000 to save these dogs. Transporting just one can cost as much as $500. They are all neutered and microchipped.
They've got a busy weekend. They're going to an adoption event in the city. Ruff House Rescue is already accepting applications. The cost is between $400 and $500. The money will help offset the transportation and vet bills.
