Aragon is a dog that knows a thing or two about being rescued, being a former stray dog himself. So it’s no wonder he recognizes when an animal needs help. Recently, while out for a walk with his human he found a litter of abandoned kittens!
“Abandoned litters of kittens are such a common thing in Greece, that every time we come across one, our usual reaction is ‘oh, no, not again’, says Valia of the Orphan Pet and a rescuer with SCARS. “Within only a month, SCARS has rescued more than 25 kittens, all abandoned in the same way. Aragon is an adopted dog. His mum is a SCARS volunteer who lives near the mountain of Immitos. Almost every day she finds empty cardboard boxes on the mountain (sometimes with the blankets and the toys still inside), but no animals.”
“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),” Valia writes. “This time, the kittens were lucky. 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, and he has been an excellent foster dad since day one.”

The kittens are now ready for their forever homes. If you wish to adopt them, please visit the charity’s website.
