Milwaukee County Transportation System (MCTS) driver Jamie Grabowski completed her route around midnight last week and spotted two stray dogs running alone through the streets. Worried that the couple might freeze in the cold or get hit by a car, she stopped the bus and called them.
«Hey, you two! «You need to go home right now!» shouted Jamie. «Come on, go inside!» Then she opened the front door and let the dogs board the bus. After that, she contacted MCTS dispatchers to inform them of her unusual situation.
Jamie sat down and played with the dogs until a police officer approached them. He took them to the Milwaukee Area Pet Control Commission, the only facility in the area that accepts stray dogs.
It was found that the dogs got out of the yard and walked four kilometers from their family’s house. All night the family searched for them. And thanks to Jamie, the dogs were returned safe and sound to their families just in time for Christmas.
Jamie, an animal lover who jokes that she is a «dog handler». She said she was glad to be in the right place at the right time to help two «really good boys.»
The family of two met with Jamie this week to thank her for helping their children return home. MCTS shared photos of the reunion on social media.
