As firefighters battle the Detwiler Fire in Mariposa County, California, they rescued a dog discovered wandering in the blaze. Cal Fire posted a photo of the pup on Facebook and turned it over to an animal rescue group so they could help find its owners.
And they really didn’t have to wait long. Around 20 minutes after the pic was posted, two sisters saw it and recognized their parent’s pooch. Jolee Peterson and Lynette Peterson McDonald knew it was their parent’s dog, Sandy.
“Thank you so much for taking care of my parents dog and all that you are doing,” Peterson McDonald wrote to CAL FIRE. “We are very thankful. As soon as they can be home they will get her.” We love it when the power of social media is used for good!
