A deputy with the Greene County Sheriff's Department went out of his way to make sure all members of a family were kept safe after a recent car crash.

Chief Deputy Rick Mellow found him, took him back to the Sheriff's Department and made sure he was taken care of while his owners were being treated.

Several people expressed how they felt about Mellow on that Facebook post.

"This makes me so proud," Linda Russell commented. "To have such wonderful officers that we can depend upon for things just like this.”
