Rescued Dog Saves 6 Abandoned Kittens (Photos)

Banzé (or “Scamp”) was once a homeless dog—so when he heard the plaintive mews of an abandoned litter of kittens, he did not hesitate to save them, as he had once been saved.

The kittens were trapped inside a box atop a trash heap, in a neighborhood near Săo Paulo’s Jardim Aeroporto. He gently tore the box apart, and then carried the kittens—one by one—back to his human’s home. (source)
