Aragon is a dog that recognizes a thing or two about being rescued, being a previous 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 trashes of kittens are such a common thing in Greece, that every time we come across one, our normal reaction is ‘oh, no, not once again’, says Valia of the Orphan Pet and a rescuer with SCARS. “Within just a month, SCARS has actually rescued more than 25 kittens, all abandoned in the same way.
Aragon is an adopted canine. His mum is a SCARS volunteer that lives near the mountain of Immitos. Nearly everyday she locates empty cardboard boxes on the mountain ( in some cases with the blankets and the toys still inside), but no animals.”
” Within a few hrs 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 preparing to video on the big number of animals abandoned there, when Aragon began pulling us towards their direction– generally he was the rescuer, and he has been an excellent foster father because day one.”
