'Putting Pets First'. Pets caught in fires
Posted: April 13, 2012
Guardian strives to provide peace of mind to families during a very difficult time. When their home burns the family is scared and unsure of what their future holds. Sometimes family members and pets are injured and require care. The emergency response team often finds these furry family members in distress and in need of medical attention.
We recently met a dog named Benji who was found in a burning home by rescue services and they brought him to Guardian. Benji is a sweet little Yorkshire Terrier who was showing signs of smoke inhalation, having troubles breathing, and had burns on his eyes. We treated Benji and were so happy to reunite him with his owner a short time later. Alberta Primetime aired a story about Benji and other pets that needed our help.
