A dog named "Serenity" is making waves on social media after a person found the dog keeping five kittens warm on the side of a Canadian road.

According to Pet and Wildlife Rescue, they were contacted by the person who found them and they have "been living our best lives ever since!"

The kittens have been taken in by a foster family until they are old enough to be adopted.

The shelter posted about the situation on Facebook:

The shelter staff is concerned about getting backlash for not adopting me out with the kittens that I was found with, but the kittens are not old enough to be on their own yet. If they waited for the kittens to be ready that would mean that I wouldn't have my forever family for a couple of months. It is always the staff's goal to get dogs out of the shelter environment and into their forever homes as soon as possible. At the end of the day I am just happy that the kittens were found with me and are now resting peacefully in a warm foster home instead of outside in the cold. Once they are old enough they will find homes of their very own! Once I'm spayed on December 3rd I will be all ready to go!

People immediately volunteered to adopt "Serenity," but the shelter warned that despite her heroics with the kittens, she has some issues with other dogs:

I'm surprised that so many people applied to adopt me when they don't even know my personality or quirks yet - I must just be THAT cute! Let me tell you a little bit about myself so that the shelter can find the most suitable home for me. I'm obviously great with cats and would have no problem going to a home that has cats in it??. I'm estimated to be about 2 years old so I'm still young and have the energy of a toddler. I love zooming around outside and will run circles around any person or object that is out in the yard with me. The shelter staff has been working on it, but I can be quite jumpy and need to be taught some manners. At this time in my life I would do best in a home without small children that I can knock over - I wouldn't want to accidentally hurt someone. I've gotten along with a couple of dogs at the shelter so far - both were extremely submissive or uninterested in interacting with me. Along with my dominance I am HUGE on playing and have a tendency to get right in other dog's faces. I didn't get along with the dominant or even slightly reactive shelter dogs. I do need help with my house training as it is not perfect right now.
