Most of these dogs would live short, difficult lives, each new day a challenge to find enough food to stay alive while trying to avoid people intent on torturing or killing them. The lucky ones are rescued, restored to health and rehabilitated by compassionate individuals who then reach out to rescues in Canada for help finding them loving homes.
All of the dogs are treated for any injuries and illnesses, are spayed or neutered and vaccinated. Many of them will have a missing limb that had to be amputated to save their lives. When they are ready to travel and a foster or adoptive home has been found for them, they are flown to Vancouver, BC to start their new and much improved lives.
