Glendale firefighters help care for dogs displaced by a fire

Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. - It's been more than a week since a fire destroyed a Glendale home.

The house was a total loss, destroying everything inside. But there was something life behind. Two dogs, alive in the back yard, with no one to take care of them.

That was until a group of Glendale firefighters heard about what happened and stepped in to help.

The dogs were left behind with no food or water. An animal rescue organization leader spotted the dogs alone in the back yard, and she notified to Glendale Fire Department, who joined forces to help.

"They're just happy dogs," said Andy Padron.

A group of firefighters came to check on these two dogs who were left behind by their owners a week ago after a fire gutted the home.

"We have an A, B, and C shift. So every day we come down here and make sure the dogs have water and food and that they're doing ok," said Padron.

On Sunday a member of the Fetch Foundation, an animal rescue, just so happened to spot the dogs in the back yard.

"They called us and let us know the dogs were in the backyard and that they were currently trying to find homes for them. Obviously our instincts kicked in to take care of them, and take care of our community, that's how our firefighters got involved and continue to give them care," said Michael Young.

The organization was able to track down the dog's owners who surrendered the pups to them. On Tuesday, they were removed from the home. Meanwhile, Glendale firefighters say they are glad they were able to help.

"We don't have just one job, or just one job description. Everything falls into that umbrella of taking care of our community," said Padron.

The Fetch Foundation picked up the dogs and will turn them over to the Arizona Animal Welfare League.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
