Firefighters help rescue kitten trapped in dashboard

At approximately 2:19 p.m. this past Sunday, Engine 17's A shift members responded to the Dollar Tree on Cowardin Avenue for the report of a kitten stuck in a vehicle's dashboard. The crew had to remove several panels for the Richmond Animal Care and Control officer to retrieve the cat. They were able to get it done and return to service at 2:37 p.m. This is a video of the moment the kitten was freed! The cat was then turned over to the owner of the vehicle.
