Fire Coordinator Jerry Briggs has been instrumental in saving countless lives in our community, and that is not limited to human lives. Pets are family, too, and Briggs and his guys take their rescue just as seriously.

Last fall, Briggs saved a kitten from the middle of the interstate and found him a loving home.  Recently, he and his family rescued an emaciated cat and set about nursing her back to health.

“We started feeding her and she plumped up.  Really plumped up,” Briggs said.  “Turns out she was pregnant.”

Unknowingly, the Briggs family had saved not just one life, but a mother and her unborn litter.  Mom came around quickly, just needing a little nourishment and love, and she found both in abundance with the Briggs’.

Soon a litter of healthy, playful kittens was born and, now that they are weaned, the time has come to find them good homes.

The Briggs family doesn’t want any money for the 8-week-old kittens, they are free to anyone who will provide a safe and loving home.  If you are interested in a new feline friend, call Kelly at 601-218-9970 for more information.
