When the Abu Dhabi Civil Defence got a call about a kitten stranded on Shaikh Zayed Street, a busy highway in the United Arab Emirates, they quickly sprang into action. A Civil Defence team paired up with the Abu Dhabi Traffic Police for this nail-biting rescue, blocking the road from any traffic while they saved the kitten.

In the video, at least five Civil Defence personnel walk into the four-lane empty street to catch the tiny black kitten who was sitting on the shoulder of the road, more than likely terrified from the commotion. As traffic continued on the other side of the highway, the men cautiously approached the baby kitten and thankfully scooped the little one up and out of harm’s way. As onlookers watched, the men ran towards the emergency trucks to bring the kitten to safety.

After the above video was originally posted on Instagram, the video has since gone viral. And understandably! The Abu Dhabi Civil Defence are true heroes for animals, going above and beyond to help the abandoned kitten.

You too can be a hero for animals! Consider donating your time to your local animal shelter. Even if you are unable to walk dogs, there are still plenty of ways you can help! Animal shelters are always in need of volunteers to help with feeding all of the animals and cleaning kennels. Or if you enjoy more of behind the scenes action, you can assist with fundraisers or general office tasks. The important thing is that you’re doing your part to make the world a kinder place!

And be sure to share this incredible rescue video with your friends and family!

THANKS ABU DABI FOR THE HEROIC EFFORT TO SAVE ONE TINY BABY KITTY.
WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LITTLE CREATURE AND IF IT HAD A HAPPY ENDING, I.E. WHETHER ITS CARED FOR OR HAVE BEEN ADOPTED BY SOMEONE. THAT WOULD BE A NICE CHERRY AND CANDLE ON TOP OF THIS CAKE

Bravo for the Civil Defense people who helped a tiny kitten. One has to wonder if s/he was thrown from a car. The Middle East is not known for its treatment of animals and these were not just people who do animal rescue but a civil dense team who went out there. Thank you to those folks who stopped traffic to rescue this little kitten.
