A cat in North Tonawanda, New York was rescued from an apartment during a house fire on Payne Avenue Saturday morning. North Tonawanda Police Department praised the North Tonawanda Fire Department on their Facebook page.
The cat was found inside the apartment around 10:45 a.m. and had to be treated on-scene for smoke inhalation and was transported to Pinewood Animal Hospital for treatment by the North Tonawanda Dog Officer. It was later taken to the Erie County SPCA for additional treatment.
The house didn’t suffer any major damage and the fire is still under investigation. No mention was made as to whether the cat lived in the home or was a stray.
Fire departments save cats on a daily basis. Many stories never make the news about these everyday heroes who are compassionate to animals. Great job guys!
