Kitten adopted after harrowing freeway rescue

The Houston SPCA rescue ambulance, Harris County Precinct 1, and a traffic light installer from Third Coast Services, LLC worked for six hours to save a little kitten trapped under the freeway.

The Houston SPCA rescue ambulance, Harris County Precinct 1, and a traffic light installer from Third Coast Services, LLC worked for six hours to save a little kitten trapped under the freeway. She was stuck on top of a 30-foot-tall support beam under a portion of Highway 90 in southwest Houston.

Thankfully, a passerby heard her cries and called our rescue ambulance for assistance. When we arrived, it was clear we’d have our work cut out for us, but our rescue technicians never give up on an animal in need.

After some unsuccessful attempts to capture her, a Third Coast Services employee, who was working with a bucket truck nearby, didn’t hesitate to offer services after Precinct 1 asked for assistance in reaching the helpless kitten. They placed a trap high along the beam for the scared feline where she eventually made her way inside. They then transported her safely back to the ground.

The kitten, now named Freeway, had only a few minor abrasions. Veterinarians performed her spay surgery and monitored her carefully until she was ready for adoption. It didn’t take long for the perfect owner to come along and adopt her!
