Wausau firefighters win PETA award for saving dog

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Wausau firefighters have received an award from a national animal rights group for their efforts to save a dog in a house fire last week.

PETA announced the department has received the Compassionate Fire Department Award. This follows a house fire last Tuesday when firefighters saved a 7-year-old dog overcome by smoke. The dog is expected to make a full recovery. No one else was hurt in the fire.

The fire department will receive a letter of appreciation, a certificate, and a package of oxygen masks designed for animals.
