West Palm Beach, FL (September 3, 2020) An adorable kitten that was rescued last Wednesday, August 26th from a storm drain is safe and sound at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
Delray Beach Fire Rescue saved the tiny kitten after receiving a 911 call from a person hearing loud “meows” coming from a storm drain on Congress Avenue in Delray Beach. The rescue crew delivered the kitten to Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control. On Friday, August 28th, the furry feline was transferred to Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and is in a foster home until she is ready to be adopted to her forever home.
“Thanks to the quick action of the Delray Beach Fire Rescue team, this kitten - now named Stormy - was found in good condition and will soon be ready to join a loving family,” said Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
“I’m not sure which of her nine lives she’s on, but that kitten did everything she could to let people know she was down in that pipe. It was her way of calling 911,” Delray Beach Fire Rescue Chief Keith Tomey said. “She just needed a little help from our firefighters, and we were happy to give it.”
It is also still “kitten season” which is the time from early spring through late fall when cats mate and give birth to countless kittens. Peggy Adams has over 100 cats and kittens up for adoption.
