Angel the Dog Saves Kittens

A two-year-old dog that had been turned over to the Nevada Humane Society's shelter in Reno is being credited with rescuing six abandoned kittens.

While the Boxer/Pit Bull mix named Angel was on a walk with a pair of volunteers, the dog became obsessed with something in the bushes. When she refused to move on, the volunteer investigated and discovered a box full of 3-week-old orange tabby kittens that were frightened and hungry.

One of the abandoned kittens escaped before shelter staff were summoned to the scene, but Angel tracked it down and it was handed over to safety.
