Tiny Winston the kitten was incredibly weak when he was dropped off with his siblings at animal shelter Feline Hope in Kitty Hawk, South Carolina. There, he met volunteer Michelle Martello. And while Winston was teetering on the brink, Martello knew she if there was a chance to save him, she had to try.
When Winston and his two siblings arrived at the animal shelter, their chances of survival didn’t look good. It’s unclear exactly what the poor kittens had been through. But whatever the truth was, they were fighting for their lives.
It was their precarious condition that caught volunteer Martello’s attention. She works for Feline Hope, a non-profit animal rescue group that provides a number of vital services for the wider community.
