GLYNN COUNTY. Ga. — A reward is being offered to anyone who can help the Humane Society of the United States arrest the person responsible for abandoning an emaciated dog in a Brunswick porta-potty.

The underweight dog was found in a crate inside a porta-potty Sunday at a construction site for a new housing development on Pecan Point Drive.

Authorities do not know how long the dog had suffered in that condition. The dog, now called Rusty, was given emergency treatment, but doctors advised “humanely euthanizing” him because of his severe physical condition. Instead of giving up on Rusty, he was taken to a rescue group where he is recovering from his physical and psychological injuries.

"This dog was starving, caged and left to die in horrific conditions. The person who did this showed cruel indifference to the suffering of an animal. It is heartbreaking to imagine what this dog endured,” said Debra Berger, Georgia state director for the Humane Society of the United States. “Thank goodness a good Samaritan alerted authorities in time and he is receiving veterinary care. We hope our reward helps find the person or persons who committed this despicable act.”

The person responsible will face animal cruelty charges. If you have any information regarding the incident, you are asked to call the Glynn County Animal Shelter at 912-554-7501 or email animalservices@glynncounty-ga.gov.

You could receive a reward up to $5,000.
