What started as a normal day at the House of Blues became a sweet story of rescue when Clint Phillips and his coworkers discovered three tiny kittens discarded in the recycling bin of the concert venue’s alley.
Staff and musicians alike took turns watching after and bottle-feeding the kittens. After a night of VIP treatment backstage and some help from social media, the kittens were delivered to Mark Cooper of Operation Kindness, the original and largest no-kill animal shelter in North Texas.
With more than 40 years of caring for abused, abandoned, and neglected animals, they knew just what to do and the three siblings were soon on their way to safe and loving homes.
Stories like this one happen every day, and Operation Kindness is committed to being available for every needy animal. More than 80,000 cats and dogs have been saved since Operation Kindness began, and the nonprofit currently cares for approximately 300 cats and dogs on a day-to-day basis, with another 150 in foster homes.
This year alone, more than 4,200 homeless animals have received medical care, shelter, and food from Operation Kindness.
