A 10 week old kitten was rescued from Safford Friday night it was a team effort of several hours to get the little kitten to safety.

Cheryl Christensen with the Arizona Desert Cat Rescue & Sanctuary said the kitten had fallen into a broken pipe in the yard of an empty house.

“The kitten was initially thought to be in the wall of a house because that was where the screams were heard,” she said.

The kitten was found 15 feet from the sewer channel under the street and about 75 feet from the house.

“After hours without success, the kitten, now named Echo, was pushed with a snake and a camera about 75 feet towards the house where the screams were heard and finally rescued from the sewer pipe under the toilet,” he said. said Christensen.

The efforts of the Animal Rescue Group, Safford Fire Department and 3G Plumbing made the rescue possible.

“They never gave up on him,” Christensen said of those involved in Echo’s rescue.
