Homeless Man rescues all Animals from a Shelter after Bursting to Flames

At a local animal shelter in Atlanta, the building suddenly lit up in flames with all animals inside. It was said to have started in the kitchen. As soon as 53 Keith Walker noticed the fire, he rushed inside in pursuit to retrieve the animals or as many as possible. Walker said he was scared to run into the heat and smoke but he says that his dog is his best friend, and wouldn’t be here without him so he knew he had to try and rescue the other ones. Even the firefighters at the scene didn’t want to handle the cats and dogs but Keith was already in there trying to get every animal away. He was able to get all 6 dogs and 10 cats to safety. The owner says, “I can’t thank him enough for saving my animal. I’m still in disbelief because I’ve been around a fire and I know how fast they flare-up. He is my hero.” Without this amazing brave man, many animals would’ve sadly been lost.
