The Daily Treat: Animal Rescue Founder Saves 21 Foster Dogs from House Fire

Originally posted 01/17/2015 01:50PM

Tammy Carper is dedicated to helping animals, so much so that she risked her life to rescue 21 dogs under her care.

Carper of Bean Station, Tennessee, spends her days as a driver for Movin' on UP Volunteer Animal Rescue Transports. When she isn't helping pets get to their new homes, she is caring for them at her own residence, reports Dogster. Over the years, Carper has transformed her double-wide trailer into TLC Rescue, a safe haven for dogs until they find a forever family.

Unfortunately, now Carper and her dogs need to find a new place to live. On Jan 8., a fire – most likely started by a wood stove – quickly engulfed the woman's home with Carper and the dogs inside. The good news is that the animal rescuer acted quickly and selflessly, saving all 21 dogs under her care from the blaze.
