TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Animal Protection Officers saved kittens from a drain during the rainstorms.

Officer George Economidis looked into the drain at the Tierra Ridge Apartments and could see some fluffy fur moving in several inches of running water from the storm. They got all the kittens out, except one was still stuck in the drain. They couldn’t get the wet, scared kitten out, so Drexel Heights Fire District came to assist in the rescue.
