Of course, calling a <a href="http://www.fireengineering.com/articles/2012/01/large-animal-rescue-for-the-fire-service.html" target="_blank">local fire department</a> or animal <a href="https://www.petfinder.com/animal-shelters-and-rescues/" target="_blank">shelter</a> is one of the most common ways to help animals in need. But Fenell took the opportunity to get involved in a more hands-on way. (It goes without saying, though, that personal safety should always be your first priority.) </p><p>Fenell's actions serve as a pleasant reminder of how taking our time to help others is just one of the ways we can make this world a bit brighter. <strong>Going out of your way is a lovely and simple way to make the world a better </strong>—<strong> and cuter </strong>—<strong> place for all. </strong></p><p>Just ask the ducks.</p><p class="shortcode-media shortcode-media-rebelmouse-image"><img type="lazy-image" data-runner-src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8xOTM0NzAxOS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY1MjQxNzc3NH0.kJ1d8Gqy_ebJo9EwWqS_ADU6afLxVIMIf3LOyOc96Yw/img.jpg?width=980" id="0de33" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="45cf5a19d641970d5cf527c6c4a79c8f" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image"><small class="image-media media-caption" placeholder="add caption...">Screenshot from Shara Fenell via WREG.</small></p>
