The New York City Fire Department station, known as Fort Pitt, fell in love with Ashley from the first wag of her tail. A beautiful sand-coloured pit bull, she has truly become part of the team, and even has her own seat in the firetruck. Ashley also has her own Instagram account where you can follow all of her firefighting adventures.

Ashley was rescued by No More Pain, a New Jersey organisation dedicated to saving and relocating animals left to die. The company, a non-profit team of 4, has limited resources and relies heavily on donations. You can help them here.
