Paramedics ‘Called to Care’ share photos of adopted pets

EMS1 readers shared photos of their adopted pets they met while on duty

By EMS1 Staff

Paramedics regularly adopt dogs and cats they meet on calls.

On April 11, National Pet Day, we asked some of our EMS1 readers on Facebook to share photos of their adopted pet, especially one they met while on duty.

This is another great example of how EMS providers are “Called to Care,” which was the theme of EMS Week 2016. We received a lot of submissions that we’re glad to share.

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own, email it to or post on our EMS1 Facebook page.
