Initially, he was unsure of the identities of the two silhouettes that were huddled together in the darkness. However, as he approached them cautiously, it became apparent that they were actually a couple of pit bulls who were wounded. These fur babies were petrified and alone, unwilling to budge from each other’s sides, yearning for anyone to lend them a hand. Even though these friendly creatures were scared and uneasy, they couldn’t contain their joy at being saved by the most benevolent fellows in the city!

Hennessey got in touch with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, who then dispatched two of their officers, Deputy Reed and Deputy Boggs, to stay with the canines until the Orange County Animal Services could take custody of them. Upon their arrival, the pooches appeared to have sensed that they were there to assist them, and immediately felt more secure. It was unfortunate that one of the dogs was in a pretty bad shape, prompting Deputies Boggs and Reed to bandage her wound using gauze to prevent further bleeding. Considering the place where they were found, it seemed apparent that the injuries were most likely from being hit by a car.

The pups were shivering and cold, but the officers embraced them tightly to provide warmth and comfort until further assistance arrived. Despite feeling exhausted and chilled, the officers were determined to not abandon the helpless animals.

After a couple of hours, the Animal Services in Orange County came to the rescue and took the dogs off the street to ensure their safety.
