9.9.15 - Dog Rescued from 110-Degree Shed


Guardians of Rescue makes another heroic rescue!


Outreach never proves to be dull. Cruelty never ceases to exist in our efforts to change lives, one by one. The temperature outside today was over 90 degrees. A call came in from a concerned neighbor about a dog that has been beaten and abused and can be heard but has not been seen for a while.

When we arrived to the driveway the homeowner came out, but there was no dog in sight. If not for the faint whimpering in the distance behind the house, we would have never found “Manson” inside a shed. Yes, that WAS his name! Guardian member Frankie was shocked to find this poor pit bull living inside an enclosed shed, which was like an oven inside, at 110 degrees with no food, no water, nothing but feces, urine-soaked rags and makeshift bedding among bags of concrete and debris.



THE SHED OF SUFFOCATION: Manny is removed from his life inside the shed. This poor 8 month old Pittie has been seen…

This was “Manny’s” life. His owner, who has been seen beating the dog by neighbors, is now in prison on other charges, and the ignorant father thought nothing of putting the dog in the shed! Frankie convinced him to surrender the dog. Manny was immediately brought to our shelter partner, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue, where he received fluids for dehydration and is receiving medical attention for skin infections and parasites.

He will soon be available for adoption. Law enforcement will take on the legalities of this case. Our work is to get the dog to safety. And we did just that… and guess what? Manny forgives his abusers and loves everyone! This is a perfect example of “If you see something, say something!” Want to sponsor Manny? Please consider a donation and save a life at:
