If there’s a way to prepare for heartbreak, do it now (And don’t say we didn’t warn you).

When PETA fieldworker Heather Johnson first met 6-month-old Cora, she found the shepherd mix chained to a post in a backyard along with four other pit bulls. They had no regular access to food, water or warmth.

Underneath Cora’s chain was a collar and it had not been adjusted in so long that it was embedded into her skin, causing her to bleed.

PETA was able to gain custody of all of the neglected dogs, and, with Johnson’s help, Cora captured someone else’s heart and was placed in a loving forever home. This video shows that sweet homecoming with her new guardian Teresa Manns.

“It’s so very exciting to drop her off with her new mom,” says Johnson in the video. “I know she’s going to have a great life.”
