Meet Ada. She is a sweet little dog who was kept chained up to a propane tank for nearly 10 years. Now, thanks to PETA, she’s got a super sweet and loving family and a little (human) best friend named Eliot. Ada follows her owners everywhere and is happy to finally have her forever home!
Here is Ada’s story: from propane tank to forever home and a forever best friend!
PETA had known about sweet little Ada for quite some time and for nearly a decade they visited her, spayed her, and even groomed her. Her owners had seen what they were doing and had promised to keep her inside; however, each and every time that PETA paid a visit, she was tied up to that same exact propane tank with mats all in her fur; from these heavy mats in her very neglected fur, poor little Ada had her skin pulled painfully tight.
After quite some time, Ada’s stinky, bad family finally gave PETA the permission to take her from them and give her a much better life than they ever could do for her.
After some much needed bath time and countless grooming sessions, Ada is now safe at her forever home. At first, Ada went into the hands of PETA’s Shelter Manager named Hollie Wood. Here, Ada formed a literal instant bond her Wood’s 7 year-old daughter named Eliot. Instead of being chained up to that nasty propane tank, Ada now gets to snuggle up with Eliot and follow Hollie all around the house doing chores and her everyday routine(s).
She has a bed, she curls up and snuggles in it, and most importantly, she’s totally forgotten about her old life and continues to live her new, happy, and healthy one!
"“Although Ada is now safely indoors, countless other dogs are kept chained and/or penned outdoors 24/7, neglected, and mistreated. Every year, PETA’s rescue team finds dead or dying dogs confined to pens and/or with heavy chains around their necks. Dogs kept penned or chained outdoors often go without adequate food, water, shelter, and veterinary care and are limited to the same few square feet of space day in and day out. Chained dogs have frozen to death during cold snaps or died from heatstroke on sweltering summer days. Already this year, at least 135 animals have reportedly died from heat-related causes across the country, which is more than double the number of heat-related deaths reported last year or any other year on record”."
We are so happy and grateful that Ada was rescued! We hope that her story inspires others to do the same, say something when they see something, and just overall, keep loving our dogs!
