BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Animal Enforcement Officers from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call for assistance from a citizen who reported that a kitten had fallen into a storm drain.
According to the citizen, the cat had been in the storm drain for a couple of days and was clearly in distress.
Once on scene, Animal Enforcement Officers contacted Brevard County Road & Bridge for assistance who arrived on the scene along with our partners from Brevard County Fire Rescue.
By working together with the other responding agencies Animal Enforcement Officers Virginia Rymer and Chris Hahn were able to rescue the kitten that appears to be approximately four weeks old.
The kitten was subsequently transported to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Center where it was immediately evaluated.
While the kitten appeared to be waterlogged and in some distress, it is expected to make a full recovery having only used up one of its 9 lives.
Please join me in thanking everyone involved in this rescue and also in thanking the citizen who contacted our agency to make us aware of the situation.
This is what happens when a community works together to keep everyone safe.
