Firefighters in Broward County, Florida, encountered an injured dog while returning to the station this week. The crew of Rescue 32, with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, didn’t hesitate to stop and render assistance to the pit bull who appeared to be suffering with a broken leg.
The two-year-old dog was curled up on the side of the road in West Park when the rescue crew encountered her. The team immediately stopped to provide her with treatment at the scene, and then carefully transported her to the Hollywood Animal Hospital.
Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Michael B. Kane stated:
“One of the most unique opportunities for a public safety professional is to have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life each and every day. Even if that someone is of the 4 legged kind.”
Thanks to the prompt attention, this pooch is expected to be okay – great work Rescue 32 Crew!
And efforts are being made to find the dog’s owner. Chief Kane stated:
We are actively searching for her owner in the Hollywood/West Park/Pembroke Park area. If you recognize her and know her owner, please have them contact the Hollywood Animal Hospital 954-920-3556
