Animal rescue organization helps gets kitten out from trailer struck in Keremeos rockslide

Cat rescued after rockslide

Volunteers with the Animal Lifeline Emergency Response Team Society (ALERT) stepped in to assist with getting a little cat out of the trailer that got hit by one of the boulders at the Keremeos Rockslide.

ALERT posted the rescue to Facebook on Wednesday, after being called in to help out.

"She was terrified," they said in their post.

With a gigantic hole in the trailer, the team was unsure whether the cat was still inside or had moved outside.

"We all figured in so we placed a trap inside and taught her Mom how to set it. Two nights she was petrified and her Mom grabbed her today when the trailer was moved. We are all so happy she is back safe with Mom."

ALERT is a Central and South Okanagan animal emergency agency based out of Penticton that is activated alongside Emergency Support Services to ensure people have what they need for their animals.

Anyone with concerns about their animals can call 250-809-7152 for assistance in making an evacuation plan during an emergency. Find out more information here.
