FRANKLIN - After a car accident that left one dead at the scene, firefighters found a dog trapped in the wreckage.
"The canine appeared to be severely injured, it wasn't moving but it was still breathing. Once everything was taken care of on the human side, we were able to get a hold of an animal hospital," said Captain Gary Hicks of the Franklin Fire Department.
Crews transferred the dog to CAVES, an emergency vet in Concord. Doctor's went to work without knowing if the bill would ever be paid.
Franklin Fire Department typically doesn't handle canine calls but they were thankful they were able to get Maggie the help she needed.
"This isn't something we usually run into in this severity and they were gracious enough to help us out. It's outside of what we do in a regular basis," said Hicks.
Franklin residents and more importantly pet owners couldn't believe the effort put forth by CAVES and the fire department.
"I mean it's nice that they would go the extra mile you know to try and have a positive situation come out of something so horrible and tragic," said Franklin resident, Tailor Carrero.
CAVES could not be reached for comment but Franklin Fire said this rescue would not be possible without them.
The dog, named Maggie, may have fractured her jaw in the crash but she's expected to make a full recovery.
