A demi-decade ago, there was an Aussie teenage girl who had a strong passion for saving animals who gave her own birthday money to save a total of 14 poor little fluff balls when she was riding home.
When Lucinda was 13 years old, she received a little bit of birthday money from her parents so she decided to give away $50 for the abandoned kittens who appeared right in front of her feet. When she was riding home along the Moonee Ponds Creek track, there were about five tiny kittens who came up at Lucinda meowing for help.
“They were so cute. I didn’t want to leave them, they looked so forlorn and lost.” – She said.
“It was raining so I ran home to get a laundry basket to collect them.”
For some unclear reasons, there were other nine kittens who showed up, so she returned and rescued them. Having 14 kittens in the laundry basket, she used all her money for the taxi and she quickly contacted Lort Smith Animal Hospital to get some help.
“It was my birthday a few weeks ago and someone gave me $50 so I used it for a taxi to take the kittens into Lort Smith.” – She said.
Fortunately, everything paid off. The kittens were safe and happy thanks to Lucinda’s remarkable help. This story is a reminder who those who intend to dump animals to stop and raise people’s awareness of helping them out. Animals are like us, they deserve a good life.
