Instagram Firehouse Pets Are Hard at Work on International Firefighters' Day

Posted on

Put down your lightsabers! May the 4th may be a Star Wars fan holiday, but more importantly, did you know it’s also International Firefighters’ Day?

Brave dogs and cats across the nation are pawing around your local firehouse, showing support for their human colleagues who have one of the most dangerous — and most heroic — jobs in the world. Now you can follow many of these talented animal adventurers on Instagram, where their days range from catnaps on top of a coiled fire hose to doggie ride-alongs on the back of a fire truck.

Here are just a few furry firefighters who deserve an extra “Good boy!” or “Good girl!” and a scratch on the back (or under the chin) today.

This proud rescue —who calls Engine 55 in Little Italy, N.Y.C., home — may just rescue you one day.

Meet @station57cat

This fire girl, affectionately known as “Killercat,” calls the Bed-Stuy neighborhood in Brooklyn home.

Ashley is a rescue who loves rides in the fire truck. She also just welcomed Pudgie the chicken into her home!
