The situation looked dire for seven tiny kittens abandoned in the middle of the forest. Then Banner the Husky stepped in, and people are calling the sweet-natured service dog a hero. Abandoned as they were, these little newborns certainly couldn’t have fended for themselves. So they were lucky indeed, that Banner found them.

This Husky Seemed Really Worried

 

It was a new day in Menlo, Georgia, when Banner and her owner, Whitney Braley, were standing outside the family home. But Braley, 30, knew something was up because the husky kept tugging on her clothes. Banner was clearly upset, MailOnline reports.

“She had been acting really weird all morning. I couldn’t understand what was wrong with her,” Braley said. “She wasn’t listening to me when I told her to come, which isn’t like her as she is very well-behaved.”

So Braley, who has three children of her own, followed the dog into the woods. The two stumbled on an abandoned cardboard box and Banner repeatedly circled around it.

 

Banner stuck her nose inside the box and pulled out one kitten after another. The babies were “barely alive,” Braley said. And since bringing the sweet kittens home, Banner hasn’t left their side. She’s been cleaning and cuddling with the seven kittens as if she were their mother.

 

And after finding out all of the kittens are healthy, Braley cared for them until they were old enough to be adopted.

 

She is disgusted that someone could abandon these babies

 

“Someone must have put them into a cardboard box, closed the lid tight and left them there to die,” she said. “They probably thought that no one would ever discover them.”

She marveled at her beautiful husky dog for finding the babies.

 

“I don’t even know how Banner knew they were in there. The kittens were freezing and weren’t meowing or anything,” Braley said. “She just knew somehow. She is a true hero. If she didn’t find the kittens, they would have all died.”

But how could anyone, Braley wondered, do something this mean?

“It makes me sick that anyone could do that to these tiny, innocent animals. It’s so cruel and heartless.”

That’s why it’s so wonderful that Banner came along just at the right time. These beautiful kittens survived and they are healthy. Is this a cute photo or what?

 

This is what love looks like:

 

Thanks to Banner the husky and her kind human mom, these kittens will go to loving homes where they will always be safe.
