Dashboard Cam Captures Police Officer Rescuing A Kitten From Highway Overpass


After seeing a lot of animal cruelty in the world, we are happy and relieved to find videos of people rescuing animals. It gives us hope, and it shows us that in there’s still some good left in this world. And with that, our faith in humanity is restored.

That’s exactly how we felt when we saw this video of a police officer rescuing a kitten from a highway overpass. The police officer heard a loud cry while he was driving along Beltway 8 near Pasadena. He pulled over to see what it was, and he discovered that it was a cat who was stuck between the drain openings. The video below is the footage captured by the dashboard cam in his police car. Check it out!

Great job, officer! You are a hero!

The poor kitty is now under the care of Pasadena Animal Shelter. She will soon be available for adoption if no one comes in to claim her.
