Dogs are pictured in cages at a dog meat farm in Wonju. Because airline flights can only carry a limited number of dogs a day, it will take a couple of weeks for HSI to rescue all 200 of the dogs at the farm. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji

An empty dog cage is seen at a dog meat farm in Wonju. Consumption of dog meat is on the decline in South Korea, where it is mainly eaten by older people and dogs are increasingly popular as pets. Still, HSI estimates there are 17,000 dog-meat farms in the country. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji

Rescue workers from Humane Society International rescue a dog at a dog meat farm in Wonju. "As soon as they're ready for adoption, we find that there are line-ups of people - literally people would line up at shelters - in the U.S. to adopt these dogs because people are so engaged by their sad and compelling stories," said HSI campaign manager Andrew Plumbly.
