Stray Dog Curls Around Five Orphaned Kittens In Snow To Keep Them Warm

On a freezing cold night in Ontario, Canada, a passing driver found a shivering stray dog curled up on a snowy roadside. But when the driver stopped and took a closer look at the dog, he spotted that she wasn’t alone.

The kind pup had wrapped herself around five tiny and orphaned kittens. She was keeping them warm in the biting temperatures, acting as their mama. Although the dog could have found a safer place to spend the night, looking after the babies was clearly her main priority.

The good driver quickly took them to the Pet and Wildlife Rescue shelter to get checked out. “It’s truly heartwarming!” a shelter spokesperson told The Dodo. “It had been a very cold night so these kittens would have had a very hard time surviving.”

The kittens are healthy and safe, but they require treatment for flea and worm infestations. Meanwhile, the sweet stray dog is being well-looked after at the shelter and insists on overseeing the kitten’s progress with regular visits.

It’s still unclear where the six animals came from originally, Pet and Wildlife Rescue is hoping that an owner will come forward. If nobody claims them, they’ll be put up for adoption like the other pets at the shelter.

The shelter told The Dodo: “Our staff sees many difficult situations on a daily basis and stories like this one make every heartache worth it.”

The story of this resilient group is truly inspiring. Thanks to the brave dog, the kittens were saved, and six pets may get new homes. Staff at the shelter said that if it hadn’t been for that dog, those kittens would be dead right now.

The kittens may be orphaned, but they now have a new mother. If you love this touching story, please share it with your friends and family members!
