RIVERSIDE – Last week, a kitten was found stuck inside of a discarded drain pipe and was brought to the attention of Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter by a Good Samaritan where he was treated immediately.
Seeing as there was no way possible to get him out of the pipe, veterinarians from the animal shelter sedated the kitten and had firefighters from CAL fire station No. 16 use the Jaws of Life to cut the pipe in order to retrieve the kitten.
The kitten’s health was restored and was available for adoption a few days later.
Rene Magallon was the adopter of the kitten and was more than happy to take her new family member home.
