Phoenix Fire crews and AHS EAMT rescue cat stuck in palm tree

Another day, another amazing rescue for AHS Emergency Animal Medical Technician™, Andy Gallo. Cat rescueOn Thursday, AHS Emergency Animal Dispatch received a call about a cat in distress up in a palm tree. When Andy arrived, he discovered the kitty was 40 feet up in a palm tree and witnesses say she had been up there for days. Working in partnership with Phoenix Fire Department, Andy was lifted into the leaves and used a catch pole to retrieve the feline and successfully lower her to safety. After her rescue, the cat, now known as Willow, was taken to our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, where she enjoyed a large bowl of food. The incident left Willow hungry and dehydrated, but overall she’s healthy. Over the next few days, Willow will be spayed and put up for adoption. 20160505_164819 See the news coverage: ABC15       UPDATE: Willow will be available for adoption tomorrow, May 12th, at 4 p.m. at our Sunnyslope Campus. Her adoption fee is $40.  Willow is independent, curious, and adventurous, which is probably how she ended up in such a precarious situation. Overall she’s a very loving and affectionate 2-year-old Tortie-colored cat with captivating eyes.
