“The dog was extremely exhausted and had ice forming on its face and nose when we arrived,” stated Fire Chief DeWitt to the township.
GEORGETOWN CHARTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Georgetown Charter Township posted to Facebook Monday that a dog is safe and sound after it had fallen through the ice on Cedar Lake East.
The post read that the Georgetown Twp. Fire Department responded to a rescue call from the Ottawa Co. Sheriff’s Department. They also said the owner had attempted to rescue the dog on their own but they were unsuccessful.
Rescuers arrived from the Georgetown Twp. Dive Team. They used ropes and surface rescue suits to enter the water. They were able to get the dog back to shore.
The fire department told the township that Hazel, a black lab, is recovering well back home with her owner.
“The dog was extremely exhausted and had ice forming on its face and nose when we arrived,” stated Fire Chief DeWitt to the township. “We were thankful that we got to reunite Hazel with her owner and that no one was injured.”
Dewitt also told the township that people should be extra cautious due to the amount of snow the area has seen the last few days and to keep an eye on pets and kids who might mistake snow-covered ice for solid ground.
