Jogger Saves Pets from Burning Home, Alerts Family with Ring Doorbell

It’s nice when you can feature a story where there is a happy ending. This could have been a much more tragic story resulting in pet deaths but thanks to a kind jogger that didn’t happen. A Scotts Valley, California resident was jogging through the neighborhood saw that a house was on fire. Rather than continue on his run, he attempted to contact the owners via their Ring Doorbell. Though there was no answer at first, he left a message, and was soon contacted by the owner.

When Courtney Polito got the message, she answered immediately. When anyone uses and records a message, Ring Doorbell will send a notification to your phone. That’s how Polito was able to see the jogger, and the smoke billowing out of her home.

At a loss because she wasn’t nearby, she gave the stranger her house code so that he could go in and save her pets. She has two dachshunds, a cat and a rabbit that were all trapped inside.

Keep Going!
