It’s heartwarming to see that there are police officers out there that know that the motto “To Protect and to Serve” doesn’t only apply to human beings. Don’t miss this story, about two kind-hearted police officers who rescue two terrified stray Pitbulls they find on the side of a busy road and refuse to leave them until help arrives.
Patrick Hennessey was driving home one cold winter morning. It was already 4:30 a.m, and all Patrick wanted to do was to get in bed. It was precisely then that he saw something that made him stop and pull over immediately.
Hennessey was so exhausted that it took him a few seconds to process what his eyes were seeing. Two terrified and injured Pitbulls were cuddled on the side of the road, whining quietly. It was a heart-wrenching scene to watch. The man, who quickly realized the two strays were in desperate need of help, called the police.
Two kind officers arrived at the rescue of the Pitbulls in a matter of just a few minutes. Despite being cold and frightened, the Pitbulls jumped on the officers and gave them a nice, wet lick as soon as they extended their hand to pet them. They must’ve known they were in good hands.
But it didn’t take the officers long to realize the pitties weren’t out of the woods just yet. One of them was bleeding badly and was in desperate need of medical attention. One of the officers applied a gauze on his wound and pressed it to stop the bleeding while the other called animal rescue services.
Given the two were found wandering along a busy highway, the officers could only assume that the injury was a result of the poor doggo being hit by a car. The officers hugged the dogs to warm them from the chilling cold.
It was then that a pedestrian named Adam saw the two cops tending the doggos and was deeply moved by the two’s kindness. He took a few pictures of the event and sent it to Orange County Sheriff’s Office and wrote: “These pictures I took depict a loving nature from our deputies and will tug at any animal lover’s heart strings. Thank you.”
The pitties were most likely abandoned, and the officers never wanted them to feel betrayed ever again. Despite the early hour, and being tired after a long night patrolling the streets, the two kind officers stuck around with them until animal rescue services arrived.
In a later interview with the Orlando Sentinel, officer Reed said: “There’s a big misconception when it comes to pitbulls. I can’t tell you how many times I got nuzzled and licked by those dogs. Just a week after we brought them to Animal Services, they were the happiest dogs I’ve ever seen.”
The two pitties were taken to Florida’s Orange County Animal Services where they were named Liberty and Justice. If you’re interested in helping the two find a warm and loving forever home, you’re more than welcome to contact the shelter here.
