Almost 10 years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coastal region of Louisiana. Among the victims were roughly 300 animals saved by the Arizona Humane Society. While nearly 60 of the rescued animals were reunited with their owners, one dog, a Chow-Golden Retriever mix nicknamed Boots, was unfortunately not among them. But the rescued pup was so loved among the staff that he ended up being fostered and adopted by one of the volunteers.
Now, Boots is paying it forward by helping shelters kittens learn to be comfortable around dogs, improving their chances of finding forever homes.
