Why are we always under the impression that dogs and cats don’t get along? A sweet stray dog proved that wrong when he bravely helped five abandoned and orphaned kittens during the freezing winter in Ontario, Canada.
A good samaritan who happened to pass by the area contacted the local Pet and Wildlife Rescue to get the kittens and the hero dog. The rescuers found the dog, who was later named Serenity, wrapped around the kittens and cuddling them to keep them safe and warm from the freezing weather.
Once they arrived at the shelter, Serenity and the little black kittens were inseparable. While the five-week-old kittens were receiving treatments for fleas and worms, Serenity would come in to check on them.
According to the shelter, if it weren’t for Serenity, the kitten wouldn’t be able to survive on their own, considering the cold freezing weather. Serenity and the kittens’ heartwarming story drew the attention of international media and became viral when the shelter posted their pictures on their Facebook page.
Serenity’s story touched a lot of people online, and they received positive comments on social media.
However, even with the shelter’s efforts to find the owner of the dog and the kittens, no one came forward. Serenity will now be put up for adoption without her cat friends since the shelter wants to get the dogs adopted as soon as possible.
The kittens will have to stay at the shelter to continue treatment, and then after two months, when they’re a bit older, they will be ready to be put up for adoption.
Using the power of social media, the shelter posted on Facebook the details on how to adopt Serenity. She is a lively and loving dog and would be happy to live with cats. Preferably, she should be rehomed by a family with no children. She wouldn’t want to hurt anyone accidentally because of her energetic and playful personality.
On the other hand, the kittens will be ready for rehoming in two months, and hopefully, Serenity’s new parents would want to adopt the kitten as well. Either way, these little felines will never forget the canine hero who saved them.
