Beacon Journal staff report
Brunswick police officers had a swift-water rescue on their hands amid this morning’s storms.
The department received a call from a resident that “newborn puppies” were struggling to stay afloat in a rain-filled ditch on Williams Drive.
It turns out the puppies were actually kittens, police said, that had become separated from their mother.
Animal Control Officer Mike Kellums rescued the kittens and transported them to the Countryside Animal Hospital. He said they have a 65 percent chance of survival.
The National Weather Service reports that this morning’s storms dropped 2 inches of rain in an hour in northern Medina County.
