Police officers have a responsibility to protect and serve their communities, but one Wisconsin cop went above and beyond for a dog that was abandoned and left tied to a tree.
On April 2nd, officers from Wisconsin’s Germantown Police Department discovered a dog bound to a tree behind a local Pizza Hut without any food or water. The dog appeared to be abandoned since it was a wooded area so the police untied the sweet dog and took her in to eat and get warm.
The dog, who was named Chance, went to the Washington County Humane Society and was put up for adoption after no one came forward to claim him. But soon after being put up for adoption, one of the officers couldn’t stop thinking about Chance and went to the shelter and adopted him.
And while the adoption was still pending, the rest of the officers were hard at work trying to find Chance’s former owner, and thankfully found the local resident and arrested them for mistreating animals, not providing proper food drink to confined animals, abandoning animals, and obstructing.
