Fire Department Digs Deep to Rescue Pup
Well, be still my heart—kind-hearted firefighters have struck again!
The Gulfport Fire Department in Mississippi has received a PETA Compassionate Fire Department Award for its efforts in rescuing a dog who was trapped 16 feet underground. A crew working on a gas line heard Pepper’s muffled barks and wasted no time in raising the alarm. The fire department and Gulfport Animal Control found the stuck pup in a small drainage pipe desperately holding her head only inches above the gushing water. Rescuers looped a catchpole over her head and lifted her to safety.
