Fire Rescue pulls a dog out of a storm sewer in Fort Lauderdale – NBC 6 South Florida

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue rescued a dog stuck in a storm drain in the Melrose Park neighborhood of Broward County.

FLFR responded to the call before noon Monday, after residents heard the dog under a storm grill while out for a morning walk and called 911.

Firefighters placed a ladder down the drain and were able to safely remove the dog, which they named “Nanna”.

“The sweet mother dog was relieved to be out of the water,” according to a statement from the Humane Society of Broward County.

It’s unclear exactly how long Nanna was stuck, but some neighbors said they heard something for three days, but saw nothing.

FLFR brought Nanna to the Humane Society to be scanned for a microchip and receive all necessary veterinary care. The Humane Society determined that she was about two years old, very thin, and had recently had puppies.

Unfortunately, they said Nanna had no collar or chip and couldn’t tell where she might have entered the storm drain from.

Firefighters accompanied her to the area she was rescued from, hoping she would lead them to her puppies, but none could be found.

Nanna will remain in the care of the Humane Society of Broward County, where her family will hopefully pick her up. Otherwise, she will be available for adoption in the next few days.

The Humane Society of Broward County is located at 2070 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale. For more information, visit
