10 Years Chained: A Dog's Rescue Story. She was snowed and sleeted on - covered in mud - no comforts

  • Animal Advocates Society of BC rescued that old chained dog one dark, cold night on the day we were told about her. We made the video in the hope that it would encourage others to rescue a yard dog. Many distraught people have told us that it did give them the courage to remove a dog from its misery and give it a loving home.

    Ten years on a chain, no blanket, not toy, not even a bone. Often no food or water. Animal Advocates Society of BC first saw this abused and neglected dog at night, lying in the frozen mud in her own feces, being snowed and sleeted on. Neighbours said that her owners urinated on her from the porch. Several upset neighbours told AAS that they had phoned the British Columbia SPCA many times, for many years.

    The BC SPCA did not charge the owner with cruelty so Judith's owners were never charged with cruelty. The BC SPCA did not help her in any way.

    Finally Animal Advocates of BC was contacted by a distraught neighbour. We went straight to her; documented her misery and then rescued her out of her indignity and loneliness.

    Please donate so we can continue to rescue dogs like "Judith". http://www.animaladvocates.com/donate/

    When we got her she was emaciated, dehydrated, and barely able to walk because of painful hips. Her coat was weighed down by clumps of caked mud. Her owners had named her "Judas". We changed her name to Judith.

    We cannot tell you this story without also telling you the happy ending that AAS guarantees every one of the dogs it rescues...
    We found her a home with two very special people, who loved her dearly, and made her a member of their family, which is what every dog wants more than anything — wants more than food, water and shelter. And when her old hips gave out, her family got her a cart and took her everywhere. She went camping, and to the lake where she went out in the water as far as she was allowed. She even chased squirrels in her cart. And when she died of old age, after eighteen months, she took with her all her memories of pure love, and warmth, and good food, and fun. And the time before didn't count at all.

    Why have an animal if you're going to treat him or her this way? That's horrific. I absolutely would have cut that chain and got that baby out of there. I wouldn't have been able to be aware of that and not do anything.

    People need to understand that if they can't take care of their pet then don't get one. It's that simple.

    There are so many dogs here in the Philippines who are chained until their death. It's so sad I always want to unchain all of them, but no one will support me. It's not illegal here to chain the dogs forever. This is one of the reasons why I hate living here.
