A Florida Sheriff's Deputy is being credited for going "above and beyond the call of duty" for her role in rescuing a group of huskies abandoned by their owners, and for helping them find new homes - one of which is her own.
According to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Deputy Kayla Durr and her partner had been called out to a derelict house filled with debris where they initially found six dogs - two adults and four puppies - confined without food or water. After rescuing those animals, however, Durr was told that there were a total of seven dogs reportedly inside the home, meaning one more puppy was still inside.
So, for the next two hours, Durr, her partner and Animal Control Officers scoured through the house, not stopping until they found the last helpless pup, reports news station WKMG.
"Only by the Grace of God we were able to find her or she wouldn't have made it another night," says Durr.
