A second shipment of dogs, all rescued from China’s meat markets, have landed at JFK Airport — their wagging tails and happy yelps saying everything about how thrilled they were to become “Americans.”
Saturday’s batch of 45 dogs arrived from Beijing via Air China on Saturday afternoon.
They were greeted with hugs and treats by their eager new adopters, some of whom have waited the better part of a year to meet their pooches.
The dogs were saved by No Dogs Left Behind, which operates a shelter in Beijing and works to save dogs from China’s meat markets.
The group arranged for another 34 rescue dogs to be flown in on Friday.
