Activists say many of the dogs that ate at the event were pets stolen from their owners. Some of the animals rescued by the NGO wore identification plates with collars, leashes or registration numbers. The organization’s plan is to find families and return the dogs.

Shortly after the rescue, the number of rescued animals rose to 389 because a dog in a truck gave birth to three puppies when the dog went to the meat festival.
