Firefighters Who Thought They Were Doing A Routine Animal Rescue End Up Getting An Adorable Surprise

Firefighters can respond to any number of dangerous situations at a moments’ notice, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. These brave men and women put themselves on the line as they battle blazes, and they save lives and property as they do so.

A firefighter’s work isn’t limited to saving human lives, however. Just like one team of firefighters in Colorado found out, they could end up saving animal lives too, even if its not the animal they expect.

A Day About As ‘Normal’ As They Come

There’s nothing very “normal” about a firefighter’s day at work. There are always fires and accidents to deal with, but there are also countless other unusual situations that come up, making the job that much more unpredictable.


At the Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) one March day, the team was waiting for their next emergency call. No one could have guessed what it would be, or what a big surprise they were in for!
