A major milestone was reached by the animal-rescue organization Angels Among Us.

The rescue is celebrating 15,000 animal rescues.

The group was founded in 2009 and it's grown into an operation with more than 700 volunteers that perform about 2,000 rescues a year.

They celebrated their growth and this huge accomplishment at the Fulton County Animal Shelter Tuesday.
