Sadly, many strays roam the streets of Greece, never knowing what it’s like to have a home or a family to love them. There is also an abundance of abandoned litters of kittens. SCARS, a rescue organization, comes across them all the time. They’ve rescued more than 25 kittens within just one month.
One of the SCARS volunteers has a rescue dog named Aragon. They would take Aragon for walks near the mountains, where many pets – kittens, puppies, bunnies, birds – were abandoned in cardboard boxes. Sadly, hungry foxes usually got to them before rescuers did.
One day, when they were walking Aragon, he began pulling rescuers toward a box. This time, there were kittens still in it! Aragon was hailed a hero. They got to the kittens just in time, because soon enough, they would’ve been eaten by a fox or another animal, just like many of the other abandoned pets were.
They took the kittens in and they were examined and given a clean bill of health. They got round-the-clock care from staff, but the kittens had a very special furry caretaker – Aragon! Aragon became their foster dad, and was so good at it! He snuggled up with them and protected them to make them feel safe and loved. It’s amazing to see dogs and cats getting along so great. Love definitely knows no species!
The kittens are now old enough and ready for their forever homes. If you’re interested in adopting one of these adorable kittens, please email SCARS at: email@example.com.
