Two sanitation workers were just working their normal route clearing trash bins around a neighborhood. Suddenly, the two men heard a sharp yet faint meow. It came from inside the pile of trash in the truck but at first, the men couldn’t find anything.
Both of them were scratching their hands to figure out just how to save it. And so, they began clearing the corners of the truck out, but still no kitten.
Two weren’t enough – the pair needed to enlist the help of a 3rd colleague to help locate the buried kitten. A shovel and a broom were also used to help navigate the 5-ton heap of trash.
They took in upwards of 30 minutes to rescue the kitten – it was a tremendous team effort but they finally got to the poor soul!
The three men then proceeded to send the kitten to a local animal shelter nearby for a good bath and meal.
The kitten slowly began to regain its strength and health back!
This lucky kitty was instantly adopted by one of the staff working at a shelter and is now happily living with his new human in a loving forever home!
