Two weeks ago, two Greene County men never dreamed they would become animal rescuers. Thanks to the efforts of these men, a little kitten's life was saved.
After driving his large compactor truck from St. James to Greystone in Greene County, Ronnie Brockwell of the Solid Waste Department discovered a tiny kitten on the back of the compactor truck between the frame and the truck rails.
Apparently the kitten had hitched a ride and traveled all those miles on the back of the truck.
Noticing that the kitten appeared to have a severely injured leg, Brockwell alerted his co-worker, Kreston Seaton, who promptly brought the kitten to the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society to receive much needed care.
Upon delivering the kitten to Amy Bowman, manager at GGCHS, Seaton informed her that he had decided the kitten deserved the name "Traveler."
We have to agree that this is a very appropriate name!
Staff Veterinarian, Dr. Barbara Hodges examined the smoky gray kitten and discovered that he had a broken rear leg. Traveler's leg was splinted and he is now recuperating at the Humane Society and doing very well.
Brockwell and Seaton have both stopped by the GGCHS to visit Traveler and check on him.
We're all very thankful that these two men did the honorable thing and rescued this defenseless being.
Both men have grown attached to Traveler and are hoping that he will get a loving home as soon as his leg has healed.
We will let everyone know when Traveler is ready for adoption and post pictures on our Facebook page!
During the month of June, we are making it even more affordable to give one of our cats or kittens a home during the month of June, we have reduced our adoption fee to just $75.
This fee includes their spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and vet exam.
Some of our cats that have been with us for a while have an even lower adoption fee … just ask!
The Greeneville Greene County Humane Society has the purr-fect cat for you!
We invite everyone to visit our adoption center located at 950 Hal Henard Road. Our hours are Monday through Friday 11-5 and Saturdays 11-4.
