Recently a powerful rainstorm hit Fontana, California, that called for a daring rescue of one desperate kitten in need. Shoppers at the local Costco were exiting the store when they could hear faint cries coming from the storm drain. David Loop, one of those shoppers, posted on Facebook about the kitten’s plight. He and other concerned Fontana residents did their best to locate the kitten and alert store workers of the kitten’s whereabouts.

Thankfully All American Plumbing came to the rescue, using a snake camera to look and see exactly where the poor kitten was located. The entire rescue took a total of 28-hours before the kitten was successfully pulled out from the drain. It was a difficult task for the rescuer workers, but seeing the kitty safe and alive made everything worthwhile!

It was also said on NBC that Loop decided to adopt the kitten after she was brought to safety! AWWW!
