On a recent cold Sunday afternoon with temperatures sliding to sub-freezing for the night, a small kitten was found at the Los Alamos land fill.
The good Samaritans brought the nearly dead kitten to the police department. Friends of the Shelter volunteers were contacted, and the kitten was transported to the Emergency Clinic in Santa Fe.
Diann Mills drove and Mary Timmers held the nearly frozen kitten next to her body trying to keep it warm. Upon arrival at the clinic, the vets and technicians went right to work and spent the night hovering over this little 4-6 week old baby.
The kitten, named Milagro (Milly for short), miraculously survived the night. Diann Mills picked her up from the emergency clinic the next afternoon and brought her to some very experienced foster parents.
Milly is thriving now, and she is eating and starting to play. Friends of the Shelter would like to acknowledge the good people who rescued Milly, the quick response of the police department to a critical situation, and Diann and Mary for taking time to transport Milly to Santa Fe.
Milly will be available for adoption once she is big enough to get all her shots and be spayed.
