God Bless Keith Walker.

Walker was on his way to the shelter to pick up his dog, when he saw the fire. He was able to rescue all the animals, which included ten cats and six dogs. (See the pics below)

According to W-Underdogs' Facebook post:

Tonight we thank our guardian angels. The homeless man that ran into our burning house and rescued our animals. The fire department and @fultonanimalservices officers MJ and Joan for quick action. Our animals are safe and thanks to the incredible response from the community, everyone is settled and safe warm and secure.

Keith told CNN:

I was nervous as hell, I'm not going to lie. I was really scared to go in there with all that smoke. But God put me there to save those animals. If you love a dog, you can love anyone in the world. My dog is my best friend, and I wouldn't be here without him, so I knew I had to save all those other dogs.
