Rescued Cat in Danville to Be Featured on Pet of the Week

Danville, VA -- We are going to have a special guest on our Danville Pet of the Week segment this week.

Last week, there was a house fire on Clay Street where firefighters saved a cat named Sox. Firefighters used a mask that the Humane Society provided them to help revive Sox.

Fire Marshal Shelby Irving says the owners moved to a new home, where pets were not allowed. So, Sox was sent to the Humane Society after being checked by a vet.

"We want to find a nice home. We feel like the cat deserves a second chance. They worked real hard on him and we just want to see him go to a good home," said Irving.

Sox will be on our noon show on Thursday if he does not get adopted before then. Irving will also be there to explain what happened.
