Dying dog found locked in filthy cage inside porta-potty

A woman enjoying a walk with her dog made a grim discovery after her own pup alerted her to something amiss at a porta-potty sitting at a construction site. The heartbreaking discovery was recounted in a Facebook post on Monday.

Annelise Mihopulos and her dog Jack. Out on a routine walk, her dog Jack pulled her in a different direction. It was in that direction Annalise saw a portapot at as construction site . The wind blew the door open a little bit. She then saw a crate.

Inside of the crate was a badly neglected dog suffering from heatstroke inside of the sweltering hot container. The post explains:

The temperature inside this portapot was about 130 degrees. She immediately pulled the crate out. The little dog, was unconscious. His crate was filled with urine up to his mouth. He was suffering from heatstroke and starvation.

Bolt cutters were used to free the dog from the crate and he was rushed to a veterinarian for care. The dog, dubbed Rusty, is receiving veterinary care and someone has sponsored the accompanying charges. No word on Rusty’s chances for survival.

If you see something, please take action. If not for Annelise Mihopulos, Rusty would be dead.
