Last week we saw two pet rescues in London – one of a terrier in Maida Vale and a parrot in Edmonton – much to the relief of their pet owners. Which makes we wonder how many times the London Fire Brigade is asked to help out in these cases annually. At two a week, it could be over a hundred times a year!
In the first instance, worried owners or members of the public should call the RSPCA on 03001234 999. They can then make some sort of assessment whether the Fire Services are need to help at all.
But let us be clear, long may these pert rescues continue with the RSPCA working with the London Fire Brigade in London though it would be useful to know the extent of it.
