A Good Samaritan noticed something that prompted her stop while traveling on a very cold night in Ontario, Canada, over the weekend.
A shivering stray dog was snuggled up on a wintry roadside.
She wasn’t, however, alone.
Despite the fact that the dog might have chosen a safer spot to spend the night, she wasn’t only thinking about herself.
Closer inspection revealed that the sweet puppy had wrapped herself around five orphaned kittens, whom she was hugging to keep warm in the freezing weather.
The Good Samaritan, in turn, rescued them all by transporting them to the Pet and Wildlife Rescue facility. But by that time, the dog and the kittens had established an extraordinary relationship.
The facts of this case made one thing apparent to rescue workers: the dog had saved the kittens’ lives.
A representative for the shelter told The Dodo, “It’s absolutely touching!” “It had been a really chilly night, and these kittens would have struggled to survive.”
The kittens are now secure, but they will need flea and worm treatment. Meanwhile, the beautiful stray dog who rescued them persists on visiting them on a daily basis, as if she were a proud mother, to keep an eye on their growth.
It’s still unknown where the dog or kittens came from or if they knew each other before that fateful night. Pet and Wildlife Rescue is trying to find their owners, but if that doesn’t happen, they’ll be placed up for adoption.
However, because to that heroic pooch, the kittens’ tragic conclusion was turned into a happy one.
“On a daily basis, our team witnesses many terrible circumstances, and stories like this one make every sorrow worthwhile,” the shelter stated.
