The sight of two tiny kittens with their legs bound by rubber bands brought everyone at the Pet Food Express store in Benicia, California to tears. They were defenseless little ones used as “bait” for dog fighting. According to AbcNews, the babies’ legs were tied so as not to injure the dogs as they practiced fighting. The kittens had no way to protect themselves; they couldn’t run, they couldn’t fight back, and they couldn’t bite.

The six-week-old kittens dubbed Will and Grace were barely alive when they were dropped off by an unknown woman. Tragically, Grace had to be humanely euthanized after suffering from severe gangrene. Pet owners are being warned not to give up their pets to unknown people – Will and Grace are the tragic victims of unforgivable abuse and torture.
The Solano County Animal Control Division is currently investigating the case and are looking for the woman who dropped off the kittens. “I’ve been in it for years and have never have seen anything like this,” stated Ruby Waderich with the rescue group Solano County Friends of Animals. Authorities want to uncover any illegal dog fighting rings in the area. Anyone with information about this case or any case of animal cruelty is asked to call Solano County Animal Control at 707-784-4735.
Will is currently being fostered, but has a long road to recovery. A GoFundMe page to help with Will’s veterinary expenses can be found here.
Get well soon Will. No one will ever hurt you again.
