DETROIT – Detroit firefighters helped rescue an injured dog who was tied to wires, a chain and a belt.

Officials with Detroit Dog Rescue said they rescued the dog around 7 a.m. Thursday after firefighters at Engine House No. 22 removed the chain and wire.

"We're seeing so many neglect cases and really need some help," Detroit Dog Rescue posted on Facebook. "In most cases, #DDR is the only place these agencies can turn to."
