While the kittens will still need a few more months of care and attention, Serenity, the brave dog, will be up for adoption once she's spayed.
A stray dog is being honored as a hero after she was found protecting a litter of 5-week-old kittens from freezing Canadian temperatures last week, reports Good News Network. Serenity the dog was found curled up on the road by a passing motorist in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. A good samaritan immediately stopped to check if Serenity was okay, and that's when they discovered that Serenity was keeping a litter of five kittens warm.
Discovering Serenity and the kittens was a blessing in disguise. If that hadn't happened, then the chances of them freezing in the cold weather were highly likely. The person who discovered Serenity also made a call to Pet and Wildlife Rescue, and a team came to take the pet and the litter to a warmer place so that they could go through a complete health evaluation to determine they were healthy.
Thankfully, there were all deemed to be in good health and the kittens are now staying with a foster family until they are old enough to be adopted. The rescue center took to Facebook to post about Serenity and the kittens and since then they've been getting a lot of requests for adoption. The rescuers later made a follow-up post about how Serenity is up for adoption and that she'd do great in any home, one that even has cats around because she's already so great with them.
The kittens, on the other hand, will need the utmost care and attention for a few more months before they can be adopted. Serenity will be spayed soon after which she will be up for adoption officially from the third of December. People had a lot of nice things to say about Serenity.
