A dog named Reagan made a discovery on an Iowa roadside that saved the lives of two kittens.
Reagan, a yellow lab, is being called a hero beyond reason.
The two kittens along with the rest of it’s litter siblings, had been sealed into a bag of Meow Mix, left on a roadside and run over by traffic on a rural Iowa highway about three months ago, WHOTV.com reports.
Reagan the dog rescued the two kittens by dragging the bag home and whined until his owner opened it. Reagan’s owner discovered the two kittens barely hanging onto life, while the rest of the litter hadn’t survived, prompting a call to the Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary.
“There was a litter of four or five of them and you couldn’t tell if there were two or three [in the bag]…they had been run over by a vehicle. It was not a pretty sight,” Linda Blakely of the animal shelter told WHOTV.com.
The Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary is now housing the two kittens, Skipper and Tipper, who weren’t originally expected to live through the ordeal. The two were bottled-fed every two hours and are now back to their normal lively selves, the news outlet reports.
Thanks to Reagan’s roadside rescue, both kittens are now up for adoption through the animal sanctuary.
