A kitten and a paramedic share a little bonding time.

The Richmond Ambulance Authority teamed up with Richmond SPCA to provide a little stress relief and help some animals in need at the same time.

The "Pets for Paramedics" program brings the animals and emergency responders together for a little bonding time.

Paramedics and adoptable animals will get together each month as part of the program.

For Friday's launch, five animals were involved – dogs Bernie and Magoo and kittens Lemonade, Smoothie and Kombucha.
