Indianapolis firefighters combing through the rubble of the south side neighborhood explosion site heard a noise coming from the debris between two leveled houses.
It was a miniature pinscher--scared but looking good. She is a blast survivor.
A dog with a computer chip named Sandy was also found at the blast site. She’s scared--still shell shocked--but safe. Animal control officers are trying to track down as many pets at they can in the Richmond Hill Community after one of the homes exploded.
“The situation down there is unbelievable but we were happy to rescue some of the animals that were affected,” said Dan Shackle, director of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control.
Two cats were also recovering, but the process is slow. The animals are looking for a safe place to hide.
“I did go into some houses yesterday and the dog or cat was hiding under the bed and wouldn't respond to its owner and the owner had to go look for it,” Shackle said.
As for the miniature pinscher, she’ll be taking her blankie home soon. The owner called and set up a reunion.
