52 dogs rescued from China meat trade arrive in NYC

2

Dozens of pups saved from potentially ending up in the Chinese dog meat trade have arrived in the Big Apple en route to their forever families.

Fifty-two rescue dogs landed from Beijing on a plane Friday morning at JFK Airport, where some of their new owners were ready to greet them.

The pooches were brought over by No Dogs Left Behind, a rescue organization that runs a shelter in Beijing.

Another is set to touch down Saturday morning carrying more dogs.

The rescue organization said it has saved thousands of furry friends by targeting slaughterhouses, wet markets, traffickers and illegal breeders across China.
