Injured Kitten Retrieved from Road and Dashboard to Undergo Donated Surgery

Dasher, an eight-week-old stray domestic long-haired kitten, rescued twice Tuesday is being scheduled for surgery to save his leg at the Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.

Dasher was originally found by a Good Samaritan in the middle of the road in Taunton after being struck by a car. The quick thinking individual scooped him up and brought him to the warmth of her car only to have him seek refuge in the dashboard. After fruitless attempts to retrieve Dasher, the car was brought to Silko Honda in Raynham which donated over five hours of labor from three technicians to rescue Dasher for the second time in one day.

Dasher is now being scheduled for surgery at Angell in an attempt to save his leg through the insertion of metal pins to stabilize his injuries. To donate to aid in the treatment of stray animals through the Angell Special Fund please click here.
