A dog from South Korea finds his forever home in New York City after a heartbreaking video showed the dog chained up. A photo of Kola went viral on social media around South Korea that showed him chained up so tight that he could barely move or sit down.

In Defense of Animals and Jindo Love Rescue teamed up to help rescue this adorable pup and got him out of South Korea and into the arms of a loving family. They have been working to save dogs from the meat trade since 2017.

Kola’s owner was reportedly raising the dog for hunting but kept him inhumanely tied up outside without shelter or access to food and water. Thanks to the hard work of Jindo Love Rescue, the owner finally agreed to give Kola to the shelter.

That’s when Azadeh Rahmani saw Kola on the shelter website and knew that he would be a perfect match.

“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 told ABC 7, New York. “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.”

Kola got his happily ever after and arrived at JFK airport this week to meet his new parents, Rahmani and her husband. To donate and help the organizations, check out their website and sign this petition to demand an end to the dog meat trade!
