She Was Being Rushed Away By Paramedics. The Problem? She Was Walking Her Dog At The Time, And Dogs Aren’t Allowed In The Ambulance.

Medical emergencies can strike without warning. When they happen in public, it can be even more terrifying. For Kim, her little dog was like a child and she couldn’t bear to leave him behind. 

She had taken her pup, Lou, to an off-leash dog park in Pittsburgh when she was going into an anaphylactic shock. She knew that she had to go to the hospital, but she also knew that she couldn’t bring Lou to the hospital. She sat in her car, waiting for paramedics, unsure of what to do…until an angel appeared!

Thank you. I mean it. Thank you.

Thank you to the lady who was at Conroy pit, between 2-2:30 on Sunday, March 20th, 2016.

You offered to help take care of my little dog, “Lou” when I couldn’t because our city’s paramedics were taking care of me – rushing me to the hospital because of an allergic reaction – an anaphylactic reaction; which initially I thought was a possible heart attack.

I don’t know your name, I don’t know what you look like, I don’t know what kind of person you are…but to me and my Lou, you are the best! I was alone, in my car and with my “furbaby.” I was scared and worried about what would happen to me, and to him. When I heard that a lady volunteered to stay with him, that made it easier for me to stay calm in a very stressful situation.

So, I just really want to say thank you. Thank you for taking time to be with him, keep him company and keep him distracted until he could be picked up by family. Thank you for being a nice person today.

I thank you, and so does Lou!. Hopefully this post will be shared so it reaches you.”


How sweet! This is why it’s a good idea to keep one of these cards in your wallet at all times! Another dog lover happened to be there in the right place with time to spare and wait on Kim’s family to pick up the nervous little pet. Just the fact that someone was willing to take care of him when she couldn’t was enough to calm her down and trust that she would get better soon. Her fur baby was taken care of, and it was a load off of her mind!
