Four adorable kittens are cleaned up and safe after being rescued from a sewer in Broomfield, Colorado. On September 10, the Broomfield Police Department Tweeted about the rescue of the kittens:
GOOD NEWS: Our Animal Services Unit rescued kittens from a sewer this week. It took more than 4 hrs to lure 3 of the kittens out of the pipes where they were hiding. A 4th was captured the next day. The babies were transported to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for care.

A post to the authorities’ Facebook page indicates that the sewer was near the Flatirons Mall, and the babies were not with their mother, and they were looking for food and water. A good Samaritan had spotted them, and attempted to get them food until the animal control officers could arrive.
Thanks to the officials’ persistence and patience, the kittens were all saved and transported to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for care.
The police department specifically thanked the officers involved:
Great work ASO Donna Shephard and Nicole Sydow!
