You may remember the heartbreaking story of Liam, a dog who was found tied in heavy chains in a yard in Long County, Georgia. This sweet boy was neglected and possibly abused for years, with animal control authorities doing absolutely nothing to end it.

Thankfully, concerned citizens pressured authorities to take action and Liam was recently surrendered to Guardians of Rescue, a non-profit organization that works to promote the well-being of all animals. His ears were chewed up, he had infections, several scars, and open wounds, he was infested with fleas and hookworm and has many broken teeth.


Since his rescue, Liam has received the medical care and attention he deserves … including fun adventures!

Guardians of Rescue recently gave Liam the royal treatment, taking him on a car ride and trip to the dog store!

First stop of the day: DONUTS! After the amount of abuse Liam endured, a sweet treat was definitely in order.


Then it was off to the pet store! Liam got to pick out whatever he wanted and he went with a really big bone!

Liam spent the rest of the day playing, running, and enjoying the sunshine. Sounds like the perfect pup outing!


“This was my first adventure and all of my new friends said there would be more – and I would meet new people too! I can’t wait!” Liam “said” on the Guardians of Rescue Facebook. Liam still has a long recovery road ahead of him but by the looks of his recent adventures, he is adjusting to his new freedom just fine!

Feeling inspired by Liam’s story? There are millions of dogs in shelters across the U.S. waiting for volunteers to spend time with them before they find their forever homes. Organizations rely heavily on volunteers to assist with animal care and day-to-day operations. There’s never a shortage of things to do and opportunities are available for people of every skill set. You can help take dogs for walks, give them food and water, and make sure their area is clean.
