A team of ER24 Paramedics have gone viral after saving a dog stuck in palisade fencing!


Kempton Park, South Africa – The pup got stuck on Thursday the 7th of March after trying to squeeze through the palisade fencing, but luckily the ER24 paramedics were on call and able to assist.

ER24 is the premier private emergency medical care provider in South Africa. They operate from 59 bases throughout South Africa and provide quality emergency response and pre-hospital care services, supporting both public and private hospitals.

ER24 do not usually attend to animal cases but knew they could be of assistance before taking the pup to the Vet for further care.

“ER24 paramedics helped rescue a dog in Kempton Park who had got himself caught between the bars of palisade fencing this evening. The injured hound was sedated and patched up before being taken to the vet for further care.”

The post has been seen and shared by thousands who are all inspired by the team who helped the pup.

Danielle Wright posted: “You guys rock. Not the first time I have heard ER24 helping out animals.”

Gabriella von Berg commented: “We need more people like this! We salute you and thank you.”

Adeline van den Worm added: “I love how you are seeing more & more stories like this! Well done!”

Elmarie Folkus said: “Now that’s what is known as going the extra mile. Bless you.”

Vivien Bruwer responded: “Huge respect and thanks to each and every one of you for your time and expertise. So very grateful.”
