ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Anderson animal control officer rescued an unlikely pair after she found a dog nursing a young kitten along a creek.

Officer Michelle Smith was dispatched to North Pointe Creek behind Home Depot in Anderson on Monday after a caller said she heard a dog barking in the area since Saturday.

To her surprise, Smith found the dog nursing a kitten at the bottom of a steep embankment along a deep ravine.

Smith rescued the small female dog and her adoptive kitten, taking them to Anderson County P.AW.S. where they have spent the past day together.

"This is one example of why I love my job," Smith said in her report.

Smith said the dog is taking care of her adopted baby, keeping the kitten clean and well fed.

Animal control hopes the dog's owner will come forward and agree to adopt the pair together.
