In this book, Emmy Park has combined her love for dogs and cats and her passion for documenting the relationship between pets and their families in this unique journey with the firefighters who serve New Yorkers and the companions that serve them unconditionally.

Meet beloved canines, felines, and even a pig of New York's firehouses--in all five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island) and Long Island.

You can experience the kinship between the firefighters and their precious furry members. Through the photographs and the stories in this book, you can feel the camaraderie and therapy provided by these animals to the firefighters at their firehouse, which is truly their home away from home. The firefighters never know what kind of emergency runs will come to them during their shifts, but the one thing that they can count on is that their loyal member with paws will always be there when they return from their run.

The firehouse animals in this book all have different stories about how they came to be there--some were rescued and had a rough start, some were dropped off because their owners could no longer care for them, and some were donated to help firefighters cope with the stress of the job. No matter the way in which they arrived, they all are special companions that provide support to the brave firefighters and offer them comfort after a tough run.
