    Rescuers with Humane Society International shut down another dog meat farm in late March, flying 55 dogs into the United States from a property in Goyang, South Korea.

    Nine of the dogs were taken to Dallas and 46 to New York City, where they will be taken to shelters in New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

    "This farm was unlike any others that we have seen in the past because the farm was completely indoors, dungeon like with very little light and no ventilation," Kelly O'Meara, director of Companion Animals and Engagement for Humane Society International, tells MNN.

    "The intense smell of ammonia hit me upon walking into the place and other than eyes behind metal wire and bars, the dogs were difficult to see in the poor light.

    The conditions were awful, just as they are on all dog farms, with small cages often overcrowded with multiple dogs, feces build up throughout the floor of the cages and in this case, a suffocating lack of fresh air."

    Like other meat farms, the dog ranged in size and breeds from shih tzus and miniature pinschers to a friendly German short-haired pointer and a sweet Pyrenees mix they named Walter.

    Several were abandoned pets still wearing collars.

    HSI has now closed seven farms and rescued 825 dogs from the dog meat trade.

    All have been brought to the U.S., U.K.

    and Canada for placement.

    You can find a list of shelters where the dogs will be available for adoption here.

    "We have no doubt this group of dogs will find loving homes and prove to be wonderful companions,"
