63 dogs rescued from the controversial Yulin Dog Meat Festival have arrived at Dog Tales in King City, Ontario, Canada.

Each year an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 dogs are killed during the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival, but this year the Humane Society International was able to rescue 200 lucky canines.

Of these 200 dogs, 110 arrived in Canada and 63 went to Dog Tales Rescue Sanctuary in King City, Ontario.

Dog Tales is a rescue like no other. Located just 40 minutes north of Toronto, the rescue is located on an incredible 50 acres of green fields, rolling hills and wooded areas.

The rescue prides themselves on rescuing and rehabilitating dogs that come from especially traumatic pasts from around the world and these new pups are no exception.

At this time, the dogs are being thoroughly assessed by their veterinary team and will undergo some much-needed TLC before they are ready to find their forever homes.

If you are interested in meeting these new additions or one of the other amazing dogs Dog Tales has in their care, they host an Open Adoption Day each Sunday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

For more information on Dog Tales and to stay up-to-date with the progress of these 63 lucky dogs, visit their website or Facebook.
