ROCHESTER, Minn. - 

Firefighters rescued a pup who fell through the ice on Saturday at Cascade Lake. 

Now - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - or PETA is recognizing the Department for its compassion. 

One of the firefighters who helped out on Saturday describes the scene. 

"So when I went out to the water, I got in the water and then I helped the dog get onto the ice," Kim Framsted said. "My crew assisted me also in getting out of the water and then I held onto the dog's collar to get onto the shore." 

The Department will get a certificate, box of vegan cookies, a letter and book for their work.

A cold Saturday night. Warmer temps on the horizon.
