Atlanta, Georgia: More than a dozen animals were saved from a burning animal shelter on December 18 thanks to a homeless man who risked his life to rescue them.

53-year-old Keith Walker said he noticed the smoke coming out of the building and acted immediately.

“The house was on fire, and all the dogs were in the house,” he said.

“I just popped the door open, went in, and started letting the dogs out.”

Keith was able to save 10 cats and 6 dogs including his own dog, Bravo.

Gracie Hamlin, who founded the W-Underdogs animal shelter, said she was rushing to get there, fearing it might be too late.

“Animal control is talking to us on the phone and they’re saying he’s just rushing in getting one dog at a time,” she said.

“Animal control was able to grab a couple from him.”

And thankfully, every animal was counted for.

Gracie said she has known Keith for a while and has allowed his dog to sleep at the shelter from time to time.

She added that the man has been on the streets since he was 13 and struggles with drug addiction.
