GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - A Grand Prairie family got a Christmas surprise thanks to the Prairie Paws Adoption Center.
The shelter used the "Pawlar Express" to deliver a kitten.
Joseph Rejo's cat was recently hit by a car, and he asked for a new one this Christmas.
So his parents decided to adopt one from the shelter.
Prairie Paws leaders and the Grand Prairie Police Department decided to make the cat's re-homing extra special by surprising Joseph Christmas morning.
"It feels awesome to have it delivered on Christmas morning from Santa. It was a great opportunity," Rojas’ father, Ted, said.
"It's a feel good moment, and to have animal services and PD involved, so to have a heartwarming moment between each department, you can't beat that," said Angellee Vincent, who delivered the cat.
This is the third year for the city's "Pawlar Express" outreach.
