Animal Sheltering

Magazine - Fall 2018

From Animal Sheltering magazine Summer 2018

HSI’s Adam Parascandola carries a dog out of the bitter cold.
Athena left the dog farm in South Korea and flew to the States, landing in the care of the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County just in time to give birth.

It’s still dark, the coming dawn a wash of paler blue in the inky sky over Namyangju, a small city outside of Seoul, when the line of vans turns off the main highway onto a gravel side road. The vans ascend the narrow drive up a brushy, frozen hillside, assembling above a cluster of ramshackle metal and tarp hangars.
