Garbage collectors made an astonishing discovery in Daytona Beach, Florida, on Monday. According to Click Orlando, the workers noticed an unusual box sitting with a pile of garbage that was destined to wind up at an area landfill.
Thankfully the workers investigated and they discovered tiny, three-week-old kittens who had been thrown away. The discarded kittens were bundled up and taken to the non-profit ARNI Foundation for care. On April 24, the organization updated Facebook followers about the newcomers:
Meet our 4 newest babies! This box was left out with piles of trash on north Halifax today. Thank god the trash men opened the box and saw there were 4 tiny kittens!! Some amazing people rescued them and now they are safe!! After some food and formula they should be ok!!! They were starving!!!
All of the kittens are safe and sound today – eating well and being cared for until they are old enough to be adopted. Great work to everyone involved in saving their young lives!
