You may know country music star Trace Adkins, but you should get to know his young daughter Brianna Adkins, as the 9-year-old animal activist in training recently saved her two family dogs from a house fire.
Brianna was with her two sisters in their Brentwood, Tennessee home when a faulty power strip set the house on fire. Her family ran to safety, but when it became clear that their two puppies were missing Brianna went into action. She grabbed her neighbor and the two ran back into the house to rescue the pets.
As a result, PETA is awarding their “Compassionate Action Award” to the girl— which means a framed certificate and a box of yummy vegan chocolates— hoping to spread the message that families with animals should make escape plans now in case of future emergencies.
“Thanks to the heroic actions of Brianna Adkins, her family’s beloved dogs survived the fire and are alive and well,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman stated. “Her heroism is a compelling reminder that all members of the family—including dogs, cats, and other animals—deserve help in an emergency.”
We hope all of our Ecorazzi pet owners have a plan of action!! If not, make one now!
