Kudos to the firefighters that saved the 4 dogs on Walden's Ridge. I know if these had been mine, I would be eternally grateful.
With many more people owning pets, it is refreshing to know the fire departments are ready and able to rescue animals. In days gone by, animals were never rescued, and often succumbed to the fire.
I thank you for the family. Your gallant efforts and success saved the lives of their beloved pets. I personally know of a family that lost their pets to a house fire.
Although the insurance replaced their home, insurance will never replace their loved pets. Still, after two years, they grieve for their pets.
One thing pet owners can do to assure their animals are saved, is place a placard on the front door or near, stating how many animals are living in the house. At least the first responders can identify and rescue the pets if no one is home. Always train your pets to the sound of the fire alarm. Often times the alarm scares them and they hide, making rescue difficult.
Again, kudos firefighters.
