The Moreland, Egleston, Fruitport, and Muskegon Township fire departments were recently summoned to assist with a large house fire in Muskegon County.
Upon arriving at the burning home, they saw smoke pouring out of the roof and immediately sprang into action.
After battling the flames for hours, the firefighters Adam Morse, Dan Minzey Jr, & Shane Ingersoll charged into the building to save the innocent puppies. Initially, the firefighters didn’t find the puppies. However, as they suppressed the fire, they heard a faint whine of a puppy from the back bedroom.They rushed to the source of the sound, and soon, they found all 5 puppies. At first, the men thought the rescue mission had failed, as the puppies were “almost lifeless.” But they didn’t give up hope.
They carefully rescued the puppies from the flames. They provided them with oxygen masks specially designed for pets available in their car.
The little ones were then sent to the rescue center Pound Buddies.
The puppies have fully recovered under the care of Lana Carson, the Director of Pound Buddies. The dog shelter has now made the cute babies available for adoption, and the little pups are eagerly waiting to find their forever homes.
Morse, Minzey, & Ingersoll checked on the puppies later to ensure their well being. They were happy to find the puppies jumping around happily & decided to spend some time with the little ones at the Pound Buddies rescue center.
These firefighters have shown everyone the importance of having pet oxygen masks handy. It’s comforting to know that firefighters like Morse, Minzey Jr, and Ingersoll are out there protecting both humans and animals.
