Newark Animal Control Officer goes viral helping a cat in a drainage pipe

Sometimes, animal control officers can have a dirty job. That was the case up in Newark on Tuesday.

Animal Control were called to reports of a cat hit by a vehicle. The cat ended up crawling into a drainage pipe and was injured, but that did not deter Officer Donna Vickers to crawl into the pipe and get the orange tabby cat.

Check out the Facebook post below from Newark Police.

“ACO Vickers’ efforts with this incident demonstrate the dedication that she has to her craft and her love of animals. Well done ACO Vickers!”

The cat was put in a carriage and transported to a nearby animal hospital where it is recovering.
