I am a volunteer with the Copper Country Humane Society, and I had to share this story. CCHS is located in a wonderful nature park with great walking trails. The dogs get out daily for walks in the woods with volunteers. Every once in a while a lost dog will show up on the trails. However, on October 22, 2012 – volunteer dog walkers found two itty bitty kittens all full of dirt meowing in the trails right near the shelter. They were scooped up and brought to the CCHS. Our shelter manager cleaned them up, fed them and placed them in a warm kennel. It is not too uncommon for animals to be found dumped in the woods by the shelter. But what makes this story so unbelievable, is what happens next.
Closing time approached, the shelter animals were all fed and ready for bed, including the new kittens. Lights out and time to leave for the night. Our shelter manager got in her car, drove home, which was about 15 miles from the shelter. When she got out of her car, to her shock and surprise was meowing coming from under her hood. Here were two more little kittens that miraculously survived a 15 mile ride in her engine. These sweet little kittens were obviously from the same “dumped litter” that were found just hours prior. They were dirty, hungry and scared. So once again, our shelter manager scooped up the babies, brought in to her home this time, cleaned them up, fed them and put them in a transport kennel for the night. All 4 kittens are incredible survivors and were reunited the next day at the shelter. Just another day in the life of a devoted shelter manager.
