READ | 6 rabbits rescued from Cobb apartment fire
Residents were evacuated and during a search of the building, crews found and rescued six rabbits from the structure.
The rabbits were provided pet oxygen masks to aid in their recovery of exposure to the flames. There were no injuries in the fire, and the rabbits were returned to their owner.
Cobb fire spokeswoman Denell Boyd said the agency has received $4,500 in donations within the last year that can be used towards the purchase of pet oxygen masks.
The masks have been added to each of the vehicles the department uses to respond to emergencies.
“I think it’s great that we are getting this award,” Boyd said.
PETA will dispatch to the Cobb fire department a package of its fire-alert stickers, a framed certificate, a box of vegan cookies and a copy of “The Engine 2 Diet,” a Texas firefighter's plan for staying in shape by eating vegan meals.
