Woman savse a life when she finds caged pit bull locked inside port-a-potty

January 24th, 2020

On any given day, thousands of people across the country work hard to rescue animals in need. Whether an actual rescue organization or just a group of worried citizens, they’ve seen just about everything imaginable. That includes dogs taken out of puppy mills, abusive homes, and various situations of neglect.

All it takes to make a difference in the life of an animal is for a single person to do the right thing. That’s what one woman did. What she came across was more than horrifying. It was inhumane.

The infamous port-a-potty

We’ve all seen them, or at least smelled them…the infamous port-a-potty. Often used at carnivals, concerts, fairs, and other public events, they’re convenient but they don’t always provide the best experience. Unfortunately, most of these portable bathrooms are not only stinky but also filled with bugs and a lot of gross accidents. When opening the door of one, a woman couldn’t believe her eyes.

“Surely, that’s not what I think it is.”

Those were probably the thoughts of a woman from Olive Township, Michigan. While out and about, she needed a restroom break. The nearest option was a port-a-potty at the Polkton Township Sheridan Park. But when she opened the door, she was shocked at what she saw.

Inside this nasty enclosure was a dog.

Mind you, the dog wasn’t just standing there waiting for someone to let it out. No…it was inside of a cage. Even worse, the cage was zip-tied shut. That meant no matter how hard this animal wanted to escape, it couldn’t. There it was, a Pit Bull locked inside a cage inside of a cold and smelly port-a-potty without any food or water.

Although in a horrific environment, the dog appeared to be relatively healthy.

She knew immediately she had to help. Without hesitation, she pulled the cage out, undid the zip ties, and came face to face with a sweet, loving Pit Bull. How in the world could a human with a soul do something like this? After freeing the dog, she headed straight for the Harbor Humane Society.

Somehow, this dog still trusted humans.

Even after what someone put this Pit Bull through, the rescuers soon realized he was nothing more than a dog with a big heart. Who knows what else he’s had to endure? Instead of shying away from humans, the dog, now named “Jon,” was super friendly. He was so happy to be out of the port-a-potty and into safe hands that he couldn’t stop wiggling his little butt.

Jon is doing incredibly well.

Although the staff at the Humane Society need to bring Jon to complete health, he’s doing amazingly well. Already, he’s stolen the hearts of everyone involved in his rescue. These angels know there’s a perfect home for this pup, one where he’ll never again have to live in fear. For Jon, a quick bathroom break is what probably saved his life.

Finding him a forever home.

When the time’s right, the organization will put Jon up for adoption. But they won’t let him go to just any home. They’ll first do a thorough evaluation of interested parties. Their goal is to match this gorgeous Pit Bull with the right family.

One thing’s for sure – whoever ends up as Jon’s new owner is very lucky. He’s a handsome fellow who wants nothing more than cuddles and love. This story is a great reminder to all of us. If you see an animal in need, take action.
