Actress Alyssa Milano has a big soft spot for animals in need. After hearing the touching story of Bomi, an abused and neglected South Korean dog who was destined for the slaughterhouse, Milano personally paid for Bomi’s relocation to the United States.

Bomi was first discovered by a South Korean animal rescue organization called CARE. The young dog, raised for slaughter, had been severely abused and was covered in wounds, sores and mange. She was tied to a pole with a chain so short that she could barely move and had no type of shelter. When CARE was finally able to rescue the dog, they found her puppies dead and frozen on the ground.

CARE partnered with The Fuzzy Pet Foundation to fly Bomi from Seoul, South Korea, to Los Angeles and place her with a foster family. Although it took many months to arrange her transport and there were not adequate funds available, Bomi’s story eventually caught the attention of Milano, who offered to sponsor the dog’s relocation.

Milano said “I am thrilled to have brought Bomi to safety, and look forward to the day she finally gets adopted into a forever home. My heart goes out to the countless other dogs and cats who are suffering from animal abuse, struggling to survive on the streets, or waiting in animal shelters for a quality home.”

Bomi is now in a foster home in the U.S. and is healthy and happy while she waits to be adopted into a forever home. You can see the amazing video of her transformation below.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
