The story of a dog tied to an iron chain in a house littered with garbage after the death of its owner is a sad story.
On the 12th, ‘helpshelter’, an abandoned animal shelter under Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do, posted on the official Instagram, “I was admitted due to the death of the owner. He is a mixed dog, weighs 6.2 kg, and is estimated to be 7 years old.” They also posted photos of the rescue site.
The dog was found in a room littered with litter, blankets, clothes and other debris. He was tied with a thick wire.
The house had mold growing all over the floor, as if it had been untouched for a long time. There were even traces of the dog’s feces.
The shelter said, “I can’t even imagine how long I must have endured loneliness alone, what I saw and heard there. Only someone’s choice makes this child’s tomorrow. I am waiting for a chance to start over,” he appealed for adoption.
This puppy may be euthanized if a new guardian is not found within the notice period. According to information on abandoned dogs in Seongnam City, the deadline is until the 20th.
In accordance with the Animal Protection Act, ownership of abandoned animals passes to local governments after a deadline has passed after the abandoned animals enter the shelter. Local governments can euthanize abandoned animals after a certain period of time.
