There's still hope for the world...

...as I see it, anyway.

I heard a brief report on the radio this afternoon that cheered me up immensely:

The Pasadena (California) fire Department, working with local members of the ASPCA, has developed a "rescue kit" for animals caught in fires. Among other things, the kit includes a variety of oxygen masks that, according to the P.F.D., will fit any animal from a horse to a hamster. In addition, some firefighters have been trained in animal CPR.

Laugh at me if you want. I'm a sap when it comes to animals.

I am with you Scrib! I think it's a great idea for the fire dept to be trained in animal CPR.

My mini-trauma unit (started as a first aid kit but got exposed to testosterone and grew and grew) includes stuff for animals too--I figure they can get injured just as often as we do.

I think it's a wonderful idea. I love animals. They're faithful friends, no matter what.

Domesticated animals are under our care, of course we should save them from our fires if we can. I couldn't agree with you more.
