A homeless man risked his life to save every animal from a burning shelter in Atlanta, Georgia.
Keith Walker, 53, rushed into W-Underdogs on December 18th after a fire broke out, according to the facility’s founder.
“I was nervous as hell, I’m not going to lie. I was really scared to go in there with all that smoke. But God put me there to save those animals,” Walker told CNN. “If you love a dog, you can love anyone in the world. My dog is my best friend, and I wouldn’t be here without him, so I knew I had to save all those other dogs.”
The shelter expressed it’s gratitude for the homeless man and it’s volunteers: “Tonight we thank our guardian angels. The homeless man that ran into our burning house and rescued our animals. The fire department and @fultonanimalservices officers MJ and Joan for quick action. Our animals are safe and thanks to the incredible response from the community, everyone is settled and safe warm and secure❤️. We just wanted to say THANK YOU to all our friends and volunteers for coming to our immediate aide. We will need you in the next couple days and weeks as we recover. But we are in your good hands… we definitely have angels among us. We are all safe . @ginnymillner @victoriastilwell for always being there for us.”
Walker was able to rescue six dogs and 10 cats that resided at the shelter.
