Alyssa Milano is being hailed as a hero after she played an important role in saving an abused dog in South Korea.

In April 2013, CARE, a South Korean animal rescue group, found a neglected dog attached to a pole with sores all over her body, RadarOnline reported. The Jindo-mix dog was being bred for dog-meat slaughter.

Workers from CARE reached out to the Fuzzy Pet Foundation, a rescue organization based in California. They asked for help in finding the pup, who they named Bomi, a home, but struggled with the funding, according to People.

That's when Milano, who has 10 rescue horses and four rescue dogs of her own, stepped in and agreed to cover the costs of Bomi's flight, the outlet reported.

It took a while, but Bomi flew to Los Angeles on Nov. 12, according to the Fuzzy Pet Foundation's Facebook page. The pooch has been successfully placed in a foster home.

"I am thrilled to have brought Bomi to safety," Milano told RadarOnline, "and look forward to the day she finally gets adopted to a forever home."

    She is beautiful, and such a sad start in life. So sad for her puppies. Hope she gets a wonderful home with love and respect. It is good to see her happy now, thank you to the foster home and to Alyssa Milano for helping rescue her.

    I just don't understand how people can be so cruel. If they were raising her for the meat market, did they get closed down to make sure it doesn't happen again? The original owners should be monitored so it doesn't happen again, they should not have pets.
