A dog from South Korea is getting a new loving, forever home after animal activists rallied together to rescue him from being chained up. A photo of Kola went viral on South Korean social media showing him chained up so tightly he could barely sit down.

Kola’s previous owner was raising Kola for hunting but neglected him and left him all alone outside and chained up with no access to shelter or food and water. Luckily, In Defense of Animals and Jindo Love Rescue took the initiative to convince Kola’s previous owner to give him up and find him a forever home where he would be properly taken care of.
“As I looked through their photos, I felt a connection with Kola, I could see in his eyes that he wanted desperately to belong to a family,” Rahmani, Kola’s new caretaker said. “I hope his story can inspire people to consider rescuing a dog and giving one a chance to be loved and cared for because I promise you they will return the favor with everything in their being.”
Although Kola got his happily ever after and is enjoying his new life in his forever home with Rahmani and her husband, not all dogs are as lucky and still need our help.
