While you hear countless news about animals being abandoned every day, you will also hear a lot of good things about dogs becoming a hero. A lot of these dogs decide that they will take care of orphaned animals.
There was a dog that took care of orphaned ducklings. There was even a dog that fostered a baby monkey.
And there was a story of a stray dog actually taking abandoned kittens under her warmth. The dog was called Serenity. An animal shelter in Canada was looking for her owner after she was found protecting abandoned kittens in the middle of the snow.
Warming up with Serenity
Through a Facebook post, the Pet and Wildlife Resources in Ontario shared a heartwarming picture of a stray dog and the five cute kittens. The dog was snuggling with the kittens to keep them warm during a cold day.
Luckily, a passerby had seen the dogs and the kittens. The passerby decided to take them into the shelter for their safety.
A spokesperson from the shelter said that what they had witnessed was truly heartwarming. The dog had saved the kittens’ lives; it was a very cold night, and the kitten might have not survived without the warmth of the dog who protected them.
The bond stays strong
Even at the shelter, the bond between the kittens and the dog remained strong. As the baby kittens received treatment for worm and flea infestations, the dog would still make regular visits to check on them.
The rescue was searching for the owners of the dogs and the kittens. They were even trying to find out if the animals had the same owner. If no one showed up to claim ownership, the dog and the kittens would be then put up for adoption.
Thanks to People for sharing this heartwarming story.
