It was the cutest rescue in FDNY history.

Firefighters rescued 46 precious little dogs and 2 adorable cats to safety Tuesday afternoon after a smoldering fire inside an air conditioning duct spread thick smoke into an Upper East Side kennel.

The blaze broke out a few minutes after 1 p.m. in the American Kennels outlet on Lexington Ave. near E. 62nd St., the FDNY said.

Arriving firefighters found heavy smoke and elevated carbon dioxide levels, and assisted store workers in removing the charming little critters from the store for their safety.
