暖心狗媽媽 -3°C雪夜用體溫保護5小貓

記者 李娉婷/報導

在寒冷的冬季,這隻「暖狗」的故事將能溫暖你的心:一週前,2歲的混種母犬在加拿大安大略省查塔姆(Chatham)附近一條鄉村道路旁的溝渠中被發現,當時的氣溫是攝氏-3度(華氏26.6度),狗被積雪覆蓋,而當路人停下來幫助牠時,驚訝地發現牠懷中有5隻小黑貓!如果沒有這隻狗的體溫,小黑貓將迅速在寒冷的夜晚死去。

當民眾在路邊發現這隻流浪狗和一窩小貓時,馬上通報當地的寵物及野生動物救援收容所(Pet and Wildlife Rescue),工作人員救出這個六口之家,並在收容所中讓牠們恢復溫暖後,決定將這隻狗取名為Serenity,17日,收容所在Facebook粉絲專頁貼上Serenity和小貓的照片,並寫下:「我們的流浪甜心今晚在收容所裡保護牠的『寶寶』!」

寵物及野生動物救援收容所表示,自從Serenity的英雄事蹟曝光後,來自各地的領養申請蜂擁而至,收容所發言人阿姆斯壯(Myriam Armstrong)告訴《法新社》(AFP),有超過30位民眾來詢問,想要領養牠們,「如果沒有這隻狗的幫助,小貓將無法在加拿大寒冷的冬天中倖存。」目前還不清楚是什麼原因讓狗狗和小貓聚在一起,但若是沒有Serenity,才5週大的小貓不可能在這樣的天氣中撐下去。

這些動物的聯繫在收容所裡也繼續存在,阿姆斯壯描述了Serenity是如何寵愛小貓,許多人都建議將牠們一起送養,不過,收容所表示小貓還需要再經過幾個星期、等待增重及完成跳蚤和寄生蟲的治療才能送養,而Serenity將在12月3日完成絕育,做好進入家庭的準備。

I have been getting A LOT of attention on social media, but let me fill you in just in case you don't know my name and my story! My name is Serenity and I was found last week on the side of the road keeping 5 kittens warm. A good citizen called the shelter, a kind Animal Control Officer picked the 6 of us up and we've been living our best lives ever since! The kittens that I kept safe have been kindly taken in by a foster family and will be put up for adoption once they're old enough to be on their own. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so that the shelter can find the most suitable home for me. I'm obviously great with cats and would have no problem going to a home that has cats in it🐱. I'm estimated to be about 2 years old so I'm still young and have the energy of a toddler. I love zooming around outside and will run circles around any person or object that is out in the yard with me. The shelter staff has been working on it, but I can be quite jumpy and need to be taught some manners. At this time in my life I would do best in a home without small children that I can knock over. I've gotten along with a couple of dogs at the shelter so far – both were extremely submissive or uninterested in interacting with me. Along with my dominance I am HUGE on playing and have a tendency to get right in other dog's faces. I didn't get along with the dominant or even slightly reactive shelter dogs.I do need help with my house training as it is not perfect. The shelter staff is concerned about getting backlash for not adopting me out with the kittens that I was found with, but the kittens are not old enough to be on their own yet. If they waited for the kittens to be ready that would mean that I wouldn't have my forever family for a couple of months. It is always the staff's goal to get dogs out of the shelter environment and into their forever homes as soon as possible. At the end of the day I am just happy that the kittens were found with me and are now resting peacefully in a warm foster home instead of outside in the cold. Once I'm spayed on December 3rd I'll be ready to go! Apply to adopt me today: https://pawr.org/adoption-process-fees/ XOXO, Serenity

收容所模擬Serenity的角度,在社群媒體寫道:「收容所員工擔心會因為沒有把我和小貓一起送養而遭到反彈,但如果他們等小貓準備好,我還要等上好幾個月。我很高興小貓和我一起被發現,現在正在溫暖的寄養家庭中休息,而不是在寒冷的室外失去氣息。」

收容所同時也描述了Serenity的特質:「我喜歡在戶外跑來跑去,會繞著院子裡的人或任何東西轉圈圈,我很喜歡跳躍,需要被教導一些禮儀,收容所的員工還在努力。」儘管Serenity需要一些室內訓練,不過牠「顯然對貓非常好,去有貓的房子也沒問題」!
