Imagine spending all of your time outside tied up to a tree. The heavy chain around your neck constantly weighs you down and you have barely any shelter from the uncontrollable elements. That was the sad reality for one chained dog who was recently found tied to a tree in the woods of Georgia with a heavy logging chain and a four-inch-thick leather collar around his neck.

After he was found, the dog (listed under shelter number 019618) was brought to a local shelter and Special Needs Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation (SNARR) was called to help. The dog was terrified and would face the hard concrete wall of the shelter when people came around. 

Unbelievably, this was the heavy chain found around the dog’s neck. No wonder he is scared of humans! 

SNARR has kindly given him his freedom ride and the dog is now at a veterinary office in Georgia. We hope with time, this sweet boy can learn that not all humans are mean. 

 

In addition to rescuing this dog, SNARR also recently helped rescue over 55 dogs from a hoarding case. If you’d like to help SNARR save even more dogs, you can make a donation via their website.

If you’re looking for a new family member, please always adopt. There are about 6.5 million companion animals entering shelters every year across the U.S. and we can all do our part to end the pet overpopulation crisis simply by adopting. By spaying and neutering your new BFF once you adopt them, you can further help reduce the homeless pet population!

It is equally important to speak up when you see animal abuse. If you’re not sure what constitutes as animal abuse, check out these signs to look out for. For more information on how to help a chained dogclick here.

Why this USA has no Animal LAWS put in place. This massive Animal cruelty done within the so called most powerful country in the world is so shameful, so disgusting and beyond imagination & also so nasty. Very poor quality lifestyles given to beautiful, loyal, gentle animals perhaps it\'s way more lowest level than a developing country. SHAME ON YOU USA lawmakers...

I lived in the South for years the Hillbilly people are horrible towards pets and all wildlife in general, many of them believe that beating their pets is the way to train them they also do not feed or water them enough I had a neighbor who did nothing for their pet it was flea infested and tick infested and never had any food or water the guy was drunk 24/7 and hardly in reality I fed the dog and cleaned it up and gave it regular flea and tick medicine and it did a lot better for awhile then one day the guy said the dog got hit by a car I believe one of his drunk friends ran over the dog in the drive way. But this type of people will also over hunt and over fish and just kill animals for no reason. Hillbillism is spreading and dumbing down of society is getting pretty bad we are headed towards the movie Idiocracy coming true...

SO SAD, This breaks my heart. Whoever did this needs to be found and truly punished but we all know that will never happen.

So all the time he was chained up no neighbors or police noticed it. So sad and I to would love that chain put on its owner. Not every person deserves an animal and all animals need to be treated in a human way. I hope somebody will have the heart and time to show what real people are like. Unbelievable.
