PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (CNS) — Firefighters and animal welfare officials rescued a poodle that fell down a sewer in Palm Springs on Wednesday.

Around 1:15 p.m. crews responded to the sewage runoff at the former Palm Springs Country Club on Whitewater Club Drive, according to the Palm Springs Police Department.

“Some kids in the area chased him and he fell about 20 feet into the opening,” police said in a statement.
