The Dog Stop was recently featured in an exciting article on Pet Age. On May 21, we announced that the owner of our Monroeville location will travel to South Korea with hopes of rescuing six dogs from the local dog meat trade.
In July, JC McGreehan, owner of The Dog Stop Monroeville, will be working in tandem with Save Korean Dogs, a South Korea rescue shelter, as well as a local shelter Pet Match Rescue to bring the dogs to the United States to find their “fur-ever” home. Before heading home to their new family, each dog will have an examination by a veterinary staff.
“This rescue project that my team and I are working on means a lot to me; my dog Kimchi is a survivor of the dog meat trade and was rescued from South Korea. I can’t imagine my life without Kimchi, or what her life would have been like either,” McGreehan said.
“There is a movement to end the sale of dog meat, and more people in South Korea are getting behind it. What we’re doing is helping propel that movement forward and provide more homes for the dogs to go to.”
