|PETA Gives Kudos (and Vegan Cookies) to Santa Monica Fire Department for Dramatic Dog Rescue|
By Jonathan Friedman
April 3, 2017 -- The top local feel-good story of the year so far was extended this past week when the radical animal rights group PETA recognized Santa Monica firefighters with the Compassionate Fire Department Award.The award from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals recognized a mid-March incident in which firefighters rescued a small dog named Nalu from an apartment fire.
She added, “PETA hopes their kindness will inspire people everywhere to come to the aid of animals in need.”
Along with a framed certificate, PETA also included a care package for the department featuring a box of “delicious” vegan cookies and a copy of The Engine 2 Diet, which the group described as “28-day plan for staying in prime firefighting shape by eating plant-based meals.”
For those concerned with Nalu's future, the dog’s owner has assured people that he is doing well.
Crystal Lamirande posted a photo of a happy Nalu along with the statement “back from the dead” on Facebook the next day.
“He is so thankful he is alive even though all his clothes are severely smoke damaged!” wrote, Lamirande adding “we are forever grateful.”
