Dogs and cats are supposed to be sworn enemies, however, one Greek rescue dog has become a hero and a foster dad after rescuing a box of helpless, abandoned kittens.
Each day, a volunteer from the Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS) takes her rescue dog named Aragon on a walk on the mountain trails near her home. Almost every time they go out, they find traces of innocent animals abandoned and left to be hunted by wild animals.
“Almost every day she finds empty cardboard boxes on the mountain (sometimes with the blankets and the toys still inside), but no animals,” SCARS explained. “Within a few hours since they are abandoned, kittens, puppies, bunnies and even birds (no joke!) become the dinner of an hungry fox (the most common predator on the mountains near Athens).”
However, during a recent walk in the area, Aragon caught an unusual scent and starting dragging his owner to it. “We were walking Aragon near the mountain, actually planning to to video on the huge number of animals abandoned there, when Aragon started pulling us towards their direction – basically he was the rescuer,” SCARS said about the moment Aragon found a box still full with tiny kittens.
Rather than acting aggressively toward the kittens, Aragon was incredibly gentle and happily took on the role of foster dad. “He has been an excellent foster dad since day one,” SCARS said. Thanks to his constant affection, the kittens are now healthy enough to be adopted and find their own forever homes.
