It was 80 degrees yesterday and stuffed in a small box without food or water, a Mama cat and her 7 kittens were covered in their own feces. We have no idea how long these poor animals were in there. The kittens are in terrible shape- they were severely over heated, and they were all very dehydrated.
It is illegal to drop animals at our door and when we say we are full... WE ARE FULL!!! By law all strays are required to go to animal control first. We are a small shelter and our space is limited! We do have cameras at each door and in the parking lot. If we can identify who left this box of kitties we will prosecute.
We pull as many animals as we can from animal control and they work very hard with other shelters as well to help get their animals placed. They also adopt animals out, so this could have been avoided completely.
Each of these cats will need to be fully vetted and vaccinated before they can be adopted, donations will be very very much appreciated.
