Cat Rescue Newcastle is a group of dedicated volunteers who rescue cats at risk of being put to sleep from local shelters. They place the animals with foster families until permanent adopters can be found. Recently CRN heard about a kitten named Henry who was scheduled to be euthanized in just a few days. One of their foster moms Michelle offered to help, but she was unable to arrange transportation.


Another CRN volunteer named Adelle stepped in, arriving at the shelter to pick Henry up just hours before his time was set to run out. As Adelle sat in the car waiting to meet up with Michelle, Henry took it upon himself to say Thank You to his savior.

Although there’s no way the kitty could possibly understand the magnitude of what Adelle did for him, his unabashed affection and gratitude for his rescuer certainly makes it seem that way! Watch as Henry showers his hero with enthusiastic kitty kisses and head butts.

CRN has since secured a forever home for Henry and word has it he is one happy kitty! Thank you to Adelle, Michelle, everyone at Cat Rescue Newcastle, and all the people who devote their time, efforts and emotions to rescuing animals in need.
