A dog in Houston, Texas was rescued after getting stuck in a storm drain on Wednesday.
The dog, named Daisy, was reported missing by her owners on Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, a passerby heard barking coming from a storm drain and called the Houston Fire Department.
When firefighters arrived, they found Daisy stuck in the drain. She had apparently been there for some time, as she was covered in mud and debris.
The firefighters were able to free Daisy from the drain and reunite her with her owners.
“We are so thankful to the Houston Fire Department for rescuing Daisy,” said Daisy’s owner, John Smith. “We are so relieved that she is safe and sound.”
The Houston Fire Department said that this is not the first time they have rescued an animal from a storm drain. They urge pet owners to be aware of their pets’ whereabouts and to keep them away from storm drains.
“We want to remind pet owners to keep an eye on their pets,” said Houston Fire Department spokesperson, Mark Johnson. “Storm drains can be dangerous for animals, and we urge pet owners to keep their pets away from them.”
Daisy’s owners are grateful for the quick response of the Houston Fire Department and are thankful that Daisy is safe.
