Thank L.A.'s dog-saving fire-fighter, Joe St. Georges!

Recently a fire-fighter made a dramatic rescue caught on camera. Hanging from a helicopter, Joe pulled a frightened stray dog named Vernon from drowning, despite receiving numerous bites in the process. Even though he was injured, Joe never let go of Vernon during the dramatic air rescue.

Some in the public complained that we should not be using public resources to save animals like Vernon. And Joe even took criticism for his role in the rescue.

But you can let Joe know that we do appreciate his heroism in saving Vernon. You can follow the face book link to send him a thank you.

Here at Veterinary Associates, we commend Joe for his bravery and compassion in the rescue of Vernon. Way to go Joe!
