After a narrow escape from a house fire, two puppies are in urgent need of a new home.

Firefighters from Kraaifontein fire brigade braved fire and smoke to save a puppy tied up in a deserted house in Voortrekker Street on 28 September.

“Firemen arrived at the burning house to find the very anxious female puppy running backwards and forwards between the front of the property and the burning house. Once the flames had been checked firemen entered the house to find the male (black pup) tied up among various vagrant belongings.

“Not only did the firefighters bravely retrieve him, but they drove around looking for someone to take them in,” says Caron Burger of Grace Animal Sanctuary in Joostenbergvlakte.

Both puppies were taken to Grace Animal Sanctuary, where they were vetted for smoke inhalation and fortunately neither had sustained burns.

The sanctuary has since distributed posters and advertised via social media in an attempt to find the owners, all to no avail and have now named the pups Lilly and Shadow.

“Both pups are between five and seven months old. They are sweet kids with no obvious vices, love human interaction and seem quite happy to meet new dogs, the roaming horses and cows and love children,” says Burger.

Shadow and Lilly will be sterilised in the near future and will be available for adoption.

Adoption applications can be requested from info.gracesanctuary@gmail.com.
