A homeless man came to the rescue after an Atlanta animal shelter caught on fire last week!
53-year-old Keith Walker rushed to the aid of dogs and cats as he noticed the W-underdogs shelter caught on fire back on December 18. The shelter's founder had already known Walker over the years, as she's let him keep his own dog inside every night. But now, she calls him her guardian angel!
"He is my guardian angel," W-underdogs founder Gracie Hamlin said. "Even the firefighters didn't want to handle the dogs. They called animal control, but Keith was already in the building pulling out the cats and dogs until they were all safe."
And talking with CNN, Walker explained why he did what he did...
"I was nervous as hell, I'm not going to lie. I was really scared to go in there with all that smoke. But God put me there to save those animals," said Walker.
Luckily, the shelter was already in the process of moving locations, so the cats and dogs Walker rescued will continue to have somewhere safe to stay.
