Across social media, you will sometimes see a video showing a dog in a situation that as an animal lover makes you thankful for those who helped turn their future around, giving them the happy ending that all dogs deserve.

Last year the Thailand-based organisation, Soi Dog Foundation released a video of a dog named Cola who they had rescued. Cola was rescued in Bangkok and the puppy was found injured. Both of his front legs had been cut off by a sword after Cola had chewed his neighbour’s shoes.

The video tells the story of Cola’s treatment after the attack, the fitting of her prosthetic legs, and his adoption by Gill Dalley, a co-founder of Soi Dog Foundation, herself a double leg amputee, who has since passed away.

Entitled “Love Will Always Triumph Over Evil”, the key message is about giving animals a second chance at life and has been viewed more than 77,000 times on the video platform, Vimeo.

The video was submitted to this year’s British Charity Film Awards where they have reached the final stages alongside five other entrants for the main ‘Charity Film Awards’ prize, where a panel of judges will decide their fate.

But you can get involved still.

The video has also been submitted to the award’s ‘People’s Choice’ category, which is voted for by the public.

Gill’s husband, John commented on the video’s success so far saying, “Gill would be immensely proud that the film of her and Cola is a finalist at the British Charity Film Award. Gill worked tirelessly to highlight the plight of dogs and cats in Asia, so for her, it’s all about making more people aware of the situation in this part of the world”.

Watch the video and cast your vote by 10th March to have your say:
