On May 3, Clark County Animal Protection Services found this tiny 4-week-old kitten named Savannah in a dumpster fire and rushed her to The Animal Foundation. She was alive but very badly burned and in immense pain. Thanks to the hard work of veterinarians and volunteers, the resilient girl is now on the long road to recovery.

Her injuries are deeper than the rescue originally thought. She has fur loss and burns, and her skin is starting to shed on her paws, face, and tail, said The Animal Foundation.

“Her fur and whiskers were singed,” Animal Foundation Communications Director Kelsey Pizzi tells Daily Paws. “Her paws were also burned, so we had to put tiny little bandages on her paws.”

Burn wounds can easily become infected, and she’s even more susceptible because she’s so young. Savannah is currently receiving around-the-clock care and being carefully treated, the rescue reported in a Facebook post. She was placed in an incubator to keep her warm, and she has also regained her appetite. She has been placed in a foster home while she continues to heal.

Despite the painful and scary experience, Savannah is a fighter and has a growing support system.
