Heroic Firefighters Bring Unresponsive Animal 'Back to Life'

Arlington, Texas -- On October 7, Arlington firefighters responded
to a house fire in north Arlington and learned that a dog and a cat were
trapped inside. While some firefighters battled the blaze, others looked for
the animals. They found the dog, Leah, who wasn't breathing. They rushed her
outside and immediately fitted her with an oxygen mask designed especially for
dogs, cats, and other small animals. After the firefighters exhausted five
bottles of oxygen and administered repeated resuscitation treatments, Leah
suddenly regained consciousness. She was taken to a veterinarian and is
reportedly doing fine. Unfortunately, although having also received
resuscitation treatment, the cat did not survive.
For successfully bringing Leah "back to life" and
attempting to save the family's cat, the Arlington Fire Department will receive
PETA's Compassionate Fire Department Award.
"Arlington's bravest are also some of Arlington's
kindest," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "We hope
the rescue workers' preparedness, perseverance, and compassion will inspire
others always to come to the aid of animals in need."
The fire department will receive a framed certificate, a
letter of appreciation, and a box of vegan chocolates.
All Arlington battalion chiefs and ladder trucks carry
various sizes of animal resuscitation masks.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
