Hi everyone, I’m “Pumpkin” the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter’s miracle kitten. I know what you are thinking; where have I seen that kitten before? Channel 2 News, 9 News and local newspapers, that’s where!

I am the lucky kitten that was rescued off of the center median of Interstate 5 freeway at Avenida Vista Hermosa in San Clemente, during morning rush hour traffic on Nov. 12. I don’t quite remember how I got there. All I know is that I am super lucky to have been rescued and taken to the shelter, where I am waiting for my new forever family.

If you would like to know more about me, or my other furry friends, call the shelter at 949.492.1617 or stop by for a visit at 221 Avenida Fabricante in San Clemente.
