A stray dog named Serenity has become a celebrity in the town of Chatham, Ontario, Canada. The pooch was found by a passerby, who stopped to see why she was sitting in a ditch in the cold. Serenity turned out to be protecting five tiny kittens. The passerby called a pet shelter, and the dog and kittens were taken in. Serenity continued to care for the kittens until they were placed in a foster home. Shelter staff intend to place Serenity for adoption, and many families expressed interest after they heard the heart-warming story of Serenity and her parental instincts.
