When the Abingdon Volunteer Fire & Rescue team was called to a house fire this month, they were relieved to see that it looked like no one was home. But their relief quickly faded when next-door neighbors alerted the rescue team about two dogs and a cat trapped inside. One of the dogs, Roxy, was found buried under a pile of broken furniture, covered in debris, and barely clinging to life. Firefighter Paul McNeely’s helmet camera captured what happened next:
The cat, unfortunately, did not pull through. But PETA, the animals’ grateful guardians, and certainly Roxy and Daisy, will be forever grateful to the rescuers for saving the dogs’ lives.
PETA arranged the happy reunion between Roxy and Daisy and their rescuers, and presented the squad with a framed award, vegan cookies, the book The Engine 2 Diet—written by a Texas firefighter who vastly improved his own health with plant-based meals—and a stack of PETA’s first-responder window stickers to help them keep saving lives.
Take it from these brave, dedicated first responders: Help emergency workers find and save your animals with PETA’s “In Case of Emergency, Please Save Our Animals” window stickers.
