Good with cats: a stray dog found by a cold Canadian night at the edge of a road, keeping warm a litter of abandoned, cold kittens.
The two-year-old mixed breed dog named Serenity by animal rescue officials was found in a ditch on a rural road near Chatham, Ontario.
It was -3 ° C and it was dark outside, and the dog was covered with a thick layer of snow.
When the passer-by stopped to help the dog, she was surprised to find five tiny black kittens “snuggling against her,” said Myriam Armstrong, spokeswoman for Pet and Wildlife Rescue.
The unlikely companions were brought to the agency for care – and all this was widely shared on social media.
More than 30 people have asked to adopt them.
“The kittens would not have survived the cold Canadian winter without the help of this dog,” said Armstrong.
We do not know how or what brought the dog together and the kittens five weeks old.
But Armstrong said their ties had been with the shelter, describing how Serenity loved kittens.
Many people have offered to find shelter together, if possible.
Armstrong said they will be ready to be adopted several weeks apart, however.
Serenity was ready after one week after being neutered, but kittens needed few extra weeks to fatten and finish the flea and parasite treatments.
An Instagram article purportedly written by Serenity indicates that she is young and dynamic, that she needs training at home, but that she “is visibly great with cats and she would have no problem at all. go to a house where cats are.
