Beltsville, Md. — On October 8, firefighters from the Prince
George's County Fire/EMS Department responded to a call from a motorist in
Beltsville after he heard mewing sounds coming from under the hood of his
vehicle as he drove along U.S. Route 1 but couldn't find the animal when he
pulled over and looked inside the engine. After 45 minutes, firefighters were
able to coax out a small kitten, who appeared to be unharmed. One of the
firefighters, who named the kitten Columbo because the incident happened on
Columbus Day, took the kitten back to the station and later to his home.
For making sure that no harm came to little Columbo, the
Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department will receive PETA's Compassionate
Fire Department Award.
"Prince George's County's bravest are also some of the
county's kindest," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.
"We hope the determination of these firefighters to save this tiny
kitten's life will inspire others always to come to the aid of animals in
The fire department will receive a framed certificate, a
letter of appreciation, a box of vegan chocolates, and a package of oxygen
masks designed especially for cats, dogs, and other animals.
