Dog Heroically Rescues, Adopts Abandoned Kitten

A woman called the animal control office in Anderson, North Carolina, reporting a barking dog behind a Home Depot. When Officer Michelle Smith reported to the scene, she was surprised at what she saw: a dog nursing a tiny kitten.

Smith first thought that the dog was trapped near the creek behind the store, but as she made her way down the embankment, she discovered that the dog was not alone. Alongside the pooch was a nursing kitten, something the officer had never seen before. While Smith was able to make it down the hill and suspected that the dog could have easily made her way back up, she figures the dog wasn’t going to leave the kitten alone. Smith told FOX Carolina, “I’m thinking it just couldn’t get back up with the kitten and I don’t think it was willing to leave the kitten.” Smith called the discovery “shocking,” but also “a really happy moment.”

After retrieving the adorable duo, Smith brought the pair to the local animal shelter, where they were kept together. Since the dog appears to be someone’s pet (the dog was groomed and wearing a collar), the shelter hopes that her owners will turn up soon to bring her — and the kitten — home.
