Kitten rescue has happy ending

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Officials from the Erie County SPCA are branding a Tuesday rescue a dramatic kitten rescue.

Police in Cheektowaga and the SPCA received a tip from a local woman who said she witnessed a small kitten fall into a storm drain on Broadway in Cheektowaga. She and her family attempted to rescue the kitten, but when officials responded,SPCA Animal Rescue Team Member Rick Rosenberry lifted sewer grates and climbed in to make the rescue on his own.

Rosenberry reportedly searched for the kitten for more than an hour, and eventually pulled up a frightened and dirty little orange kitten. The woman who originally called for help called Rosenberry a protector of animals.

“I cannot even express how kind and comforting he was to me, and how tirelessly he worked to save the tiny kitten,” she said. “II am so impressed by his work and the work of the Erie County SPCA.”

To make a happy ending even happier, the woman who called in for help of the orphaned kitten agreed to foster then adopt the kitten as it grows to the appropriate age for adoption.
