Findon – For rescuing a dog from a burning house, the firefighters of The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) received a Compassionate Action Award from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Australia.

The house on Hammond Road caught fire on Friday. It appears that the dog had run back into the house at the height of the blaze. The firefighters found him and put an oxygen mask over his face to revive him. For these efforts, the MFS will receive a framed certificate and a letter of appreciation from PETA.

“The compassion and heroism shown by members of the Metropolitan Fire Service is truly an inspiration”, says PETA Australia Director of Campaigns Jason Baker. “Adelaide residents are very fortunate to have emergency service personnel who are ready to protect and serve both residents and their beloved animal companions.”
