Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, New Jersey, is turning out to be quite the animal hero. When one of his city’s residents used Twitter to alert him about an abused dog, Mayor Booker sprung into action. Responding to a tweet about a dog left in a small crate for four days in the rain, the Mayor decided to venture out to investigate the situation on his own.

Here’s the exchange that happened on Twitter:

Of course, it all worked out much, we’re sure, to this dog’s delight. Booker tweeted:

 

Mayor Booker is no stranger to a hands-on approach to those in need. In January, he also rescued a Newark dog left in freezing temperatures in response to a Twitter post. Not just a friend to his city’s critters, last year Booker rushed into a burning home to save a neighbor.

The popular and compassionate Booker is a likely candidate for the Democratic Senate seat to replace Senator Frank Lautenberg, who recently passed away. Lautenberg, known to be a political ally for animals, introduced and vehemently championed animal protection legislation. If recent acts of heroism are any indication, Mayor Booker may be following in his footsteps.

The rescued female pit-mix dog is currently at the Associated Humane Societies in Newark.
