Firefighter Saves One Dog With CPR, mouse dies

Firefighter Saves One Dog With CPR (video at link)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- UPDATE: The Colorado Springs Kennel Club donates pet oxygen masks to the Stratmoor Hills Fire Department after learning it did not have the equipment through a KRDO NewRadio story.

Stratmoor Hills Firefighter Darren Pellett knows how to perform CPR on a human patient, but he said he'd never tried the life-saving procedure on an animal until Monday.

"I figured what could it hurt?" said Pellet. "The heart beats, you get the blood flowing, you get oxygen to the brain. So I went for it."

Pellett used CPR to resuscitate Kiki, a chihuahua that was one of five small dogs trapped inside a burning house at 1920 Chamberlain South. The fire was reported by the owner around 1 p.m. All five dogs were rescued, but a pet mouse died.

3. Every once in a while, a REAL human being....
...steps out of the shadows.

Bravo, Mr. Pellet.
