Mother Dog and Nine Puppies sent from Taiwan to LA
On June 2, one animal rescue group was on hand to welcome a special shipment they had arranged to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport. Nine puppies and their mother landed in a plane from Taiwan. The young family had been trapped in a drainage ditch and nearly lost their lives.
The rate of abuse to dogs in Taiwan is rampant and beyond rational understanding. It is commonplace for dogs to be tortured with hot oil on their faces and backs or to be caught in metal traps and left to bleed to death. And like the dogs that arrived at LAX, many are dropped into deep ditches so they cannot get out and eventually die of starvation.
So when A Dogâ€™s Life Rescue (ADLR) was contacted by Animal Rescue Team TAIWAN, they knew they couldnâ€™t turn the four-legged family away. The group quickly made all the necessary arrangements to put the dogs on a plane the next day.
