Kitten rescued from dumpster gets happily ever after

Last week, our Animal Care Officers sprung into action after getting dispatched to a call for a trapped kitten! The kitten was stuck by a dumpster and desperately crying out for help. Our officers dug to the bottom of the dumpster to see if the kitten was possibly under all of the trash, but no luck. Upon further inspection, the kitten was spotted under the dumpster, but out of reach.  

Cadet Garcia took one last look under the dumpster and saw some movement. He reached his hand under as far as he could and was able to get a hold of the screaming kitten (now named Tiger)!

Now that Tiger was safe, she was brought back to our clinic for an exam. She was under weight and showed signs of stress, along with some hair loss. She was given medicine and watched carefully while in our care. 

Just a day later, she was feeling a lot better! That same day, she was adopted! Now, Tiger is in her new home with her furever family! 

Thank you to our awesome officers and to all who take the time to make a 311 report! We couldn’t do what we do without your help!
