Simon Cowell is using all of his efforts to put a stop to the operation of a dog meat farm in South Korea.
The 58-year-old judge on America’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell, may be underappreciated by a lot of people, but he is certain to be immensely adored by those who choose to find the good in him, and it is not surprising why this is the case.
The Humane Society International is a charitable organization that works to find solutions to problems that affect animals all around the world. Simon has contributed a total of 25,000 to this organization thus far.
On Friday, the Humane Society of the United States (HSI) tweeted about Simon Cowell, explaining how his donations had prevented the loss of more than two hundred dogs and pups, most of which were rescued from a canine meat facility in South Korea.
On Friday, HSI shared a tweet regarding the gift made by Cowell. They say that because of his financial support, more than 200 dogs and pups would be spared from a South Korean dog farm that raises the pets for the purpose of selling them for consumption by humans. The charitable organization intends to travel there the following week in order to retrieve the dogs; after that, they will transport the dogs to a variety of countries, such as the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, in order for them to undergo rehabilitation and find new homes.
According to a statement released by HSI UK Executive Supervisor Claire Bass, “the significance of Simon’s kind gift is extremely significant to us, and it offers a great help to our fight to shut down this awful dog meat production.”
More than two hundred canines are suffering in the most deplorable circumstances, yet there is a genuine possibility that we may rescue them. These vicious dogs have really had the worst life up until this point, which is why we’re working so hard to get them out of those dreadful cages and into loving homes where they may experience affection, gentle arms, and comfortable beds for the very first time in their lives.
Despite the fact that the eating of dog meat is becoming less popular in South Korea, the firm claims that “thousands of dog factory farms still exist.” Out of the nation’s 17,000 dog meat farms, 2.5 million canines are bred every year specifically for human consumption. HSI’s history includes the dismantling of a total of 12 dog meat facilities and the rescue of around 1,400 canines.
It is not true that the animals will be saved if these farms are shut down. Canine meat producers who choose to quit the sector and transfer to more humanitarian businesses, such as chili or mushroom farming, may get assistance from the organization, which is one of 83 pet charities striving to tackle this problem.
They have high expectations that the Korean government would follow their example and implement phase-out strategies that are analogous to their own in order to put an end to the industry throughout the country.
In 2017, he made a public statement in favor of their initiative to #EndDogMeat by telling Greetings Britain that eating a dog would be like eating your best friend.
The former member of the judging panel on American Idol is also a pet lover; his Yorkshire terriers are his favorite pets. In 2017, he appeared on an episode of Britain’s Got Talent with his dogs, during which he made an effort to do doga, also known as dog yoga, with his canine companions.
While this is going on, Simon Cowell isn’t the only renowned person who has donated their name to the cause of abolishing canine farms in South Korea. Lisa Vanderpump, a star of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and Randi Kaye, a journalist for CNN, have both been vocal about their opinions about the matter.
