The goodness of a dog knows no bounds. These compassionate creatures have repeatedly demonstrated to the world that they are willing to risk their lives to protect someone in desperate need of assistance. This time, five helpless kittens were fighting for their lives, but a brave dog stepped in and saved them all!
A stranger was driving back home in Ontario, Canada, a few days ago when he noticed what appeared to be an animal on the side of the road. The driver pulled over to investigate because it was dark and extremely cold, and he assumed the creature had been harmed.
As I got closer, I noticed a dog curled up in the snow. However, upon closer inspection, the stranger realized what was going on. Five small kittens emerged from the gentle’s dog coat. The protective doggie was keeping them warm. It’s unclear how the dog and kittens ended up in the middle of nowhere, but the kind driver was determined to help them.
Both the caring dog and the kittens were taken to Pet and Wildlife Rescue. The dog turned out to be a stray, and the kittens were most likely abandoned. One thing, however, was crystal clear to everyone. That kind dog had just saved the kittens’ lives.
Even at the shelter, the dog had remained by the kittens’ side, just as their mother would have. Everyone at the shelter was taken aback by the dog’s affection for these helpless kittens.
“It’s truly heartwarming!” one of the volunteers explained for The Dodo. “It had been a very cold night so these kittens would have had a very hard time surviving… we see a lot of difficult situations on a daily basis and stories like this one make every heartache worth it.”
The kittens will stay at the shelter for a while because they require medical attention. The shelter also hopes that someone will come to claim them at some point. The stray dog stayed with the kittens he had just rescued.
