Some caring Tampa, Florida police officers made a midnight kitten rescue over the weekend and transported their little rescue to the vet.

Tampa Police Department shared the story at Facebook shortly afterward, just after midnight Sunday, writing: “While you were sleeping, Tampa Police Officer’s Dwight Vinkemulder and Matthew Drumsta rescued a kitten from a manhole when a conscientious citizen called TPD dispatchers after hearing repeated cries for help from this little guy. Thank you Officers for you extending your compassion to our furry residents as well. Great job!”

The kitten was transported to the emergency vet to be checked out and given a safe place to stay after the rescue.

Officer Dwight Kent elaborated  when asked by a Facebook commenter abot the kitten’s fate, writing:  “I drove the kitten over to a vet we use specifically because they WON’T euthanize the animals we rescue. They are called Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Services and they are located at the 200 block of East Bearss Ave.”
