“On June 2nd, 2011, about 24 hours into the tornado recovery efforts, an unknown tree worker brought little Toto to the Brimfield Fire Station, where Jonathan was on duty with Brimfield Ambulance. After a brief conversation with the tree worker, it was obvious that Toto was found alone in an area of storm damaged trees in Brimfield,” written on Toto’s website.
Toto only weighed six ounces at the time, and needed immediate veterminary care. Workers from the Animal Rescue League of Boston took him in and nursed him back to health.
2 months after Toto’s rescue, “Jonathan’s wife, Amy, surprised him and adopted Toto from the ARL. It was a joyous reunion. Toto had returned to Brimfield, where he belonged.”
