Winter Olympics For Rescue Kittens And Puppies Will Melt The Coldest Of Hearts

Introducing... the kitten bobsled.

Rescue kittens and puppies are getting into the spirit of the Winter Olympics in North Carolina.

In a bid to find forever homes for adoptable animals, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control hosted its own “Cold Weather Games.” Events included a ridiculously cute kitten bobsled, a puppy slalom and even kitty hockey. Puppy hockey, meanwhile, was almost as intense as the real sport.
