2019 Rescue Pet Hero – Pinky
Despite being very small, the size of Pinky’s heart is extraordinary. In 2019, Pinky and her mom Chris Kremers of San Diego, CA were in a store when five armed robbers rushed in and held customers at gunpoint. Chris credits Pinky with keeping her calm during the incredibly frightening and traumatic experience. She says Pinky laid down under her and didn’t make a sound. She says Pinky’s Zen-like demeanor gave her the strength to get through the 20 minute standoff. Chris believes Pinky’s presence that day was life-saving and a godsend during that scary situation. She says Pinky has since helped her cope with that violent encounter.
