Lansing, MI – A kitten, cold and hungry, was spared a miserable death thanks to a good Samaritan and a team of rescuers who were determined to save him. On Thursday, Ingham County Animal Control posted images of the rescue effort and shared details about how the gray and white kitten was saved.
According to the animal welfare agency, a good Samaritan discovered the kitten in a storm drain located at Michigan and Cedar in Lansing. The agency put together a team of rescuers from the City of Lansing Public Service Department and Lansing Police Department to get the 6-week-old kitten to safety.
Using air and water, the public works department was able to push the kitten to an area where he could be retrieved.
The animal welfare agency believes that the kitten, dubbed Jordan, had been stuck in the drain for “days” because he was emaciated and hypothermic when he was retrieved.
But things are looking up for Jordan; he is safe, warm, and receiving proper care. According to the shelter, he is “doing well.”
