One such innocent soul is Dawn, a sweet Pit Bull who experienced the worst of humanity’s cruelty. Her owners left her tied up in a crate outside their home, deprived of food, water, and protection from the sun. Dawn was forced to give birth to numerous puppies, which her owners then used in dog fights. When authorities finally intervened, they brought her to the Rockdale County Animal Shelter in Georgia.

Despite her horrific past, Dawn showed nothing but love to her caregivers, quickly winning their hearts.

Sadly, the overcrowded shelter had Dawn slated for euthanasia. Every time someone walked past her kennel, she would stand on her hind legs and press her body against the door, her eyes pleading for a second chance at life.

“She was begging for her life. But no one stepped up, and I’m guessing it was because of the way she looked. Maybe people thought she would be aggressive,” explained Rosa Fond, the founder of Humans and Animals United, to The Dodo.

Fortuitously, a friend of Dawn’s at the shelter reached out to Humans and Animals United, a rescue organization based in Florida. They immediately promised to save Dawn and soon pulled her from the shelter. Though she was safe, Dawn was understandably frightened and needed time to adjust.

The rescue team worked tirelessly to find a foster family for Dawn. Their persistence paid off when a loving family opened their home to her.
