BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Officers Lexi Applegate and Dale Craig, along with Maritime Security Officers Nancy Hudson and Ray Short, responded on Sunday to the area of Fishlips Bar to the report of a distressed dog that had gotten stuck in a drain pipe.

The members were able to block extra exits from the area where the dog was trapped to keep the dog from getting deeper into the drainage system.

The Port Canaveral Fire Department was then requested to assist in the rescue efforts to help flush the dog to one side of the drain pipe where the dog could be safely secured on a leash.

The strategy worked perfectly, as the dog was removed without injuries from the drainage system and transported to the North Animal Care Center for evaluation.
