The firemen were exhausted after responding to several calls that night. But the puppies were so small, they all fit in their hands. As the creatures shivered, the firefighters used a wet cloth to clean their eyes. Then, each puppy was placed in a cardboard box lined with a blanket. The black puppies cried as they crawled across the blanket, looking for each other. Then, the firefighters discovered something shocking.

It’s A Tough Job

Being a firefighter isn’t easy. They have to undergo a lot of training and pass a bunch of tests before they can put their lives on the line on a regular basis. Written exams include about 100 multiple choice questions based on spatial awareness, memory, logic and reasoning. The physical ability test includes climbing stairs while lifting 200 pounds too. The dangers they face constantly is difficult. But some calls are like a breath of fresh air from all the doom and gloom they see daily.

Firefighters often get called to the scene of wildfires, accidents, and animals who are trapped. There isn’t a whole lot that surprises these heroes. They’ve rescued countless people in dire situations. But this doesn’t make their job any less terrifying. But they’re fearless. And they ensure homes don’t go up in flames by fitting fire alarms inside houses. But things happen that shocked even the most experienced firefighters.

Firefighters have rescued animals stuck on roofs, trees, pipes, under buildings. You name it, they’ve done it. They’ve helped budgies, guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, parrots, pigeons, turtles, cats, dogs, and even fish. The Colorado Springs Firefighters are local heroes to the human community as well as animals. Sadly, not every animal they’ve rescued has been fortunate enough to have a human family.

Worried civilians reached out to the Colorado Springs Firefighters about a bunch of puppies who were stuck in a storm drain. The rescuers arrived at the scene right away. And meters away, they could hear the squeals coming from the puppies. The firefighters got on their knees and started searching for the animals. The puppies were in grave danger because they were young, and predators lurked everywhere. Time was running out.
