Thank You Tasley Volunteer Fire Company!!

We are sending out a great big THANK YOU to the heroes from Tasley Volunteer Fire Company for coming out today in the bitter cold to rescue a little puppy. Our building is across the street from an old grader on Coastal Boulevard in Tasley.DSCF5116Adrian, our Health & Safety Coordinator, was getting our chickens straight for the coming storm and he heard the sounds of a puppy crying. Further investigation led him to find this little puppy trapped in icy standing water in some sort of washing pit at the grader.DSCF5117

She was standing on that little ice shelf to keep from drowning in the cold trash-filled water.

We made several calls but no one would help us until we called the Tasley Volunteer Fire Company. Don Amadeo, Joseph Eller and Jeff Beall came right over and rescued this little baby from her terrible predicament.DSCF5123DSCF5124

They even brought a box to put her in!


SUCCESS!! You guys are the BEST!
The wonderful volunteers from Tasley Fire Company!

There are 3 short videos of the rescue below, plus here is a picture of the little puppy safe and sound at the Eastern Shore Regional Animal Control facility, where they will find her a good home if no one claims her. They believe she is about 3 months old, probably a chihuahua mix and definitely a girl. We are so grateful to the Tasley Volunteer Fire Company volunteers for rescuing this baby from a cold miserable death at the bottom of that wet pit. You guys are terrific!!
