Aragon, a Greek rescue dog, was walking with his owner Vera in the mountains when he started to pull her toward another direction.
She readily followed, until they came to a white cardboard box sitting in the middle of the path.
He found a box filled with kittens in the mountains!
“Basically he was the rescuer, and he has been an excellent foster dad since day one,” Vera said.
Both Vera and Aragon are volunteers with the Scarc animal rescue organization, and knew abandonment in the local mountains are frequent. When Aragon honed in on his destination, Vera had a good idea of what would happen.
When they uncovered the box, they found four kittens.
‘This time, the kittens were lucky.’
Once the rejected kittens were taken to a shelter, Aragon developed a quick bond with the cats.
“Aragon is curious about the kittens and since the first moment he saw them, he had a constant need to keep them all together and to clean them,” explained SCARS volunteer Valia, according to Bored Panda.
“This time, the kittens were lucky,” she added. They were all in relatively good shape.
In just the last month, Aragon has rescued 25 kittens.

The shelter also reportedly takes in animals from off the streets. In the following video, Aragon befriended a kitten named Simone who was rescued from the streets of Athens.
