Many people expect firefighters to rescue people. What they don’t realize is that firefighters are also trained to rescue animals such as dogs and cats. when a fire broke out in a home in Ames, Iowa, the owner tried to rush in to save Cleo the cat but the smoke was too thick.

That’s when firefighters showed up and rushed into the burning home where they found Cleo in the basement, completely unresponsive. The firefighters carried Cleo to safety and administered oxygen. After a long 30 minutes, Cleo finally started breathing and moving around.

Firefighters used a special animal oxygen mask that had been donated a decade ago. The next time you think of firefighters, consider making a donation of any kind, especially oxygen masks for pets like Cleo.
