Sometimes SERVPRO Finds Pets
Sometimes when performing a biohazard or crime scene clean up we find pets.
Sometimes those pets are deceased and we remove them properly, but sometimes those pets are alive and need to be relocated.
Today our crews were cleaning up a biohazard situation in Garden City South Carolina where the occupant of an apartment had passed away and due to the fact of not having close friends or family, it had gone unnoticed for about 3 weeks until other occupants around the unit started to notice an extremely pungent odor. When our mitigation specialists showed up to begin the pack out and cleaning they noticed there was a cat in the unit.
The crew notified our office and our Adminitrative Assistant Lauren Labbate took the ball and ran with it. Lauren is a pet foster mom to several dogs so she knew exactly what to do. She began researching other foster companies around the Surfside Beach area that might be able to come help us out.
She came across a wonderful lady named Kelsey with Rudy's Rescue and she called and explained our situation. Kelsey agreed to help us out and has gone to the property and removed the cat to be placed in her foster program so that someone else can enjoy its company for many more years to come.
We would like to thank Kelsey and Lauren for both going above and beyond the normal call of duty and really rising to the occasion.
If you would like to help out Rudy's Rescue they have a GoFundMe Page that you can contribute to by clicking here.
