Dog and Her Adopted Kitten Rescued From Wooded Spot Near Creek

A little dog was nursing her adopted kitten when they pair were rescued Monday after the dog was heard barking for two days.

Anderson, SC animal control officer Michelle Smith found the dog and her kitten at the bottom of a steep embankment alongside a creek behind a Home Depot in Anderson yesterday when she responded to a call. The caller reported hearing a dog barking for two days.

The closely bonded pair are at Anderson County P.A.W.S in Anderson. They are described as inseparable, and animal care workers hope the dog’s owner comes forward and keeps the pair together. The dog is very attentive to her kitten.

“This is one example of why I love my job,”  Officer Smith said in her report.

    If the owner doesn’t come forward can I adopt them both?

    Hopefully they just got separately from their family, and not just “dumped” there.

    They are both so cute. X3 I’d take them both if I lived closer.

    I would adopt them together if the owner doesn’t come forward.

    My guess is they were both dumped there, whether by the owner or fowl not know. Unlikely they just found there way there by accident. It is suprising how many purebred dogs I have found….people do not understand that small dogs are more likely to have an accident than a mid to large size dog.

    I am so glad that they are rescued and now they are sage and sound.
    Good luck, little fellas!
