Kitten Rescued After Week in Tree
[sliceshow id="20303"] Little, 4-month-old Evergreen’s trip up a tree turned into more than a short adventure when the daring domestic shorthair got stranded 50 feet off the ground for more than a week. After hearing the kitten’s cries for help, a neighbor contacted our Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™, who teamed up with the Phoenix Fire Department for a harrowing rescue attempt. The rescue crew deployed a tall ladder and then had to climb a few additional branches to reach the scared kitty, who was lethargic and dehydrated after his ordeal. Evergreen was brought to our Second Chance Animal Hospital™, where he was given fluids and nursed back to health. After a few days of recovery, Evergreen went up for adoption and found a loving home in Phoenix, where he can continue exploring the world – hopefully at lower elevations. Every day, our EAMTs and Second Chance Animal Hospital are called on to rescue and save the lives of animals throughout the Valley.
