STRATHAM, N.H. (CBS) – Looking to adopt a pet? Five dogs will soon be up for adoption in New Hampshire after they were rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea.

The dogs were part of 250 dogs and puppies that were set to be slaughtered in Wonju, South Korea, according to the New Hampshire SPCA. They were rescued by the Humane Society International earlier this year, and the farm was shut down.
