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.
