In Oklahoma City, a small dog was rescued from a storm drain by the combined efforts of the Oklahoma Fire Department and OKC Animal Welfare. The little pooch had been missing since Halloween.
According to the fire department’s Facebook page, two firefighters stood side by side holding the rescued pooch wrapped in a towel.

Fire departments across the country are frequently called in to rescue pets, and we honor these heroes who are friends and rescuers to our four-legged friends. Earlier in the year, the Arlington Fire Department in Texas rescued a deaf senior pup trapped in a storm drain for two days. In order to save the dog, the firefighters had to remove concrete to access the pipe where the dog was stuck.
And in Boston, firefighters had to join with the local gas company to rescue a dog stuck in the drain.
Stop by the Oklahoma City Fire Department’s Facebook if you have a chance, and thank these wonderful rescuers.
