Firefighters and officers from the San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) rescued a small dog that fell down and got stuck in a storm drain in San Marcos Friday, the SDHS said.
According to San Diego humane officers, a 13-year-old Chihuahua named Cici escaped from her yard Friday night and, due to her poor vision, fell down a 14 foot storm drain located on Loma Alta Dr. San Diego humane officers said a good Samaritan heard Cici crying and called the San Diego Humane Society for help around 4 p.m.
Humane officers, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the San Marcos Fire Department responded to the scene and all helped bring Cici to safety.

Cici was identified, thanks to her microchip, and was returned to home, which was located just down the street from the storm drain, SD Humane Officers said. Although Cici appeared to be OK, SD Humane officers mandated veterinary care for Cici within 24 hours to make sure she gets a clean bill of health.
