Boots is a 12-year-old Chow/Golden Retriever mix hired by the Arizona Humane Society to nurture their kittens.
Boots’ role is to socialise with kittens all day, helping them become comfortable around dogs.
This increases the kittens’ adoptability to homes with other pets. The Arizona Humane Society believes “by socializing kittens with dogs like Boots early in life, we are able to open up an entirely new world of potential home environments to that kitten.”
So Boots’ role is extremely important to all the itty bitty kitties yet to find homes.
