The Denver Fire Department rescued 13 puppies abandoned behind a church near their station on Thursday morning. The puppies, in crates, began breaking free when firefighters arrived and were quickly taken in by the crew until Lincoln County Animal Services could step in.

The puppies, a mix of Heeler and Lab/Hound breeds, have been vaccinated, dewormed, and started on preventatives. Currently, they are on a four-day stray hold, and four have already been fostered. The rescue showcases the community’s commitment to animal welfare and the quick response of local heroes.
