WATCH: Dozens of dogs rescued from China meat trade arrive in the US

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – More than 50 dogs rescued from China’s meat trade arrived in New York City on Friday, and more were expected on Saturday.

The first group of dogs touched down at Kennedy International Airport in Queens on Friday morning.

No Dogs Left Behind, the rescue group behind the effort, posted Facebook video of the dogs arriving in crates and meeting their new owners.

“What these dogs have been through is incredible, they're resilient," Jeffrey Beri, of No Dogs Left Behind, told WABC.

"They're incredible, and they're just waiting for their families, the families that have been waiting for them for almost a year now for them to come home."
