MHS rescues a kitten from the freeway

November 20, 2015

A small kitten was loose on the freeway, where getting hit by a car and possibly being killed was a very real danger for the helpless feline.

Our rescue driver immediately was dispatched to the scene where she was able to locate the kitten, curled up in a ball in the median.

She was able to retrieve the kitten when he crawled under a car, and brought him to the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care.

Once back in our care, our veterinary team was able to examine the kitten and determined that he had a badly injured leg that will require amputation. He was given pain medication, food, water, vaccinations and warm bedding and will receive the surgery and medical care he needs for his injury before being placed up for adoption.
