Service Dog Saves Owner From Fire

On August 6, service dog, Yolanda, saved her owner’s life by dialing 911 using a special phone. Leary is blind and a house fire broke out in her Pennsylvania home. Firefighters responded immediately, while her owner was taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation. Jen Leary, who founded the Red Paw Emergency Relief Team, told NBC Philadelphia that Yolanda called 911 in 2014 after her owner took a fall and became unconscious. The Red Paw Emergency Relief Team posted pictures of Yolanda on its Facebook page after the incident and added the caption: "Our volunteers just dropped off food, toys, treats and supplies to Yolanda, who is a service dog for her owner, who is blind." Yolanda and her owner have been displaced, due to the fire, but are being assisted by the Red Cross.
