Humane Society International (HSI) India branch received a call about two trucks in Mizoram that were illegally trafficking dogs for the dog meat trade. The team immediately responded and located the trucks, just in time.
The rescue team removed all the dogs from the bags and brought them to safety. Each dog was held and loved on to let them know they were safe. All the dogs were brought back to the shelter to be examined. Many of the dogs suffered from injuries to limbs and infections. Not to mention, the stress and trauma they experienced. All are recovering surrounded by gentle hands.
The police were notified about the illegal act and drivers reported. The drivers worked for Aizawl Dog Meat Seller Association in Mizoram. They petitioned the court to get the dogs back. Thankfully, the court awarded temporary custody of the dogs to HSI.
