Kitten saved from sewer

NEW CASTLE, Del. - December 5, 2009

Fire and animal rescue crews were called to the 100 block of Hayden Avenue around 5:00 p.m. Saturday after neighbors reported a kitten caught in a sewer.

SPCA worker Nick Peppe went into the sewer to salvage the feline.

Immersed in two feet of water, Peppe was able to pull the kitten to safety.

The kitten, who is being checked out at a local animal hospital, will get a new home.

He is being adopted by one of the neighbors on the block.
