Dog's Best Friends

Thursday, Sept. 17, Temple Rescue 5, and Battalion 1, responded to a distress call/call for help. The owner of a juvenile canine had called for animal control, and upon seeing the situation they in turn called for assistance from the fire department.

On arrival Rescue 5 found a small puppy that had somehow climbed into the suspension of its owner's vehicle. The crew was able to use equipment that under normal circumstances, would be used to save human lives. The crew lifted the car, while keeping the suspension separated to avoid crushing the animal. After removing a tire, and the underside of the fender well, they were finally able to reach, and remove the animal, injury free!
