This dog led his owners to a box of abandoned kittens, instantly became a foster dad

Who said that dogs and cats can’t get along? After finding a box of abandoned kittens in Ymittos, Greece, a dog named Aragon decided to make it his mission to take care of them. The four abandoned kittens were taken in by Second Chance Animal Rescue Society, also known as SCARS, where they have a few loving humans looking after them as well. But Aragon is the one who makes sure to keep them in line, serving as an unlikely “foster dad.”

A few of his jobs include making sure they don’t wander too far away, and helping them walk in a steady way. (For a brand new kitten, that’s a little harder than it sounds.)

"The kittens were lucky," wrote someone affiliated with The Orphan Pet. "We were walking Aragon near the mountain, actually planning to video on the huge number of animals abandoned there, when Aragon started pulling us towards their direction - basically he was the rescuer, and he has been an excellent foster dad since day one."

And may we say, he’s one of the cutest.

While SCARS may seem like a sad acronym, the society was named that way on purpose. Those behind the organization, which was founded in 2015, believe that animals can carry emotional scars the same way humans can.

"Animals, like people have scars in all sorts of unexpected places like secret road maps of their personal histories, diagrams of all their old wounds," their Facebook page states. "Most of our old wounds heal leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them don’t. For the ones that don’t sometimes a little help is needed. That’s where we start to offer our help. Some scars need a little help."

Surely they had no idea that their pup would adopt the same philosophy.


While we’d love it if these kittens grew old with Aragon, they’re up for adoption through SCARS. If only they would consider international adoptions…
