Prince soon after rescue
Tortured at the hands of humans, some dogs rescued from the dog meat trade, have simply lost their ability to trust. While now safe, these dogs are highly unadoptable and risk spending the rest of their lives at a shelter.
Thankfully, Soi Dog Foundation has an amazing partner rescue organization, who specializes in the rehabilitation of feral and terrified dogs. The Devoted Barn, located in Frenchtown, Michigan, has now worked with 30 dogs rescued from the illegal dog meat trade in Thailand.
The lastest survivor of the dog meat trade to travel from Thailand to The Devoted Barn is a dog named Prince. Skinny and frightened, Prince is still terrified of people, despite being rescued over 2 years ago and safe since then. No doubt he remembers the horrors he experienced and is terrified he will once again be tortured.
Using rewards and patience, the volunteers ay the Devoted Barn hope that one day, Prince will learn to trust and be able to be adopted to a loving him. If not, there will always be a place for Prince to live in safety at The Devoted Barn.
Thanks to people like you, dogs like Prince are being given the chance they deserve.
