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.
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 dog, click here.
