Volunteers from the River Rouge Animal Shelter in Michigan made a heartbreaking discovery on Wednesday morning when they found a pit bull dog frozen to death in a cage according to

A concerned neighbor had called authorities about the conditions at the Stoner Street home. Two other white poodles survived because they were able to take refuge against the wind chill by hiding under the home's porch.

The owners of the dogs were in Mexico, but stated someone was allegedly assigned to care for the dogs.

The News Herald reports the two white poodles will be available for adoption.

"After the dogs were checked out at the shelter, representatives from the Precious Animal Welfare Society, or PAWS, were called to pick up the animals.

The two dogs are available for adoption from the PAWS clinic, 21210 Goddard Road in Taylor. Visit for more information on the animals."

There has been no information if the owners will face animal cruelty charges.

If you suspect animal cruelty or neglect, please call the nearest animal shelter or call the police. Be the voices for those who cannot speak out for themselves. No one can even imagine the fear and agony this dog must have encountered before he died.

Rest in peace sweet dog.
