Someone cruelly boxed up a mother cat and three of her kittens – taping them inside of the cardboard container and abandoning them outside of a dog pound in West Virginia. The heartbreaking situation was recounted on Tuesday morning by the B.A.R.C Boone Animal Rescue Coalition.

The animal welfare agency writes of their frustration:


Once again we were contacted at 5:45 this morning by the dog warden. Another heartless, irresponsible person taped a momma and three kittens shut in a cardboard box and dropped the box next to the gate at the dog pound between 3:00 p.m. yesterday and 5:45 a.m. this morning.


The dog pound CANNOT house cats/kittens.
Our rescue is overwhelmed, overcapacity, overworked – and we have to stop what we’re doing and try to save animals like this that irresponsible owners have.

The rescue group is so overwhelmed because of similar situations that they are on an “intake hold.” The group admonished irresponsible pet owners:

If you can’t afford to get your cat/dog spayed/neutered, or can’t hold onto them long enough for a rescue to take them, then your not responsible enough to have one.

According to the group, the police have been notified about the cat and kittens who were abandoned in the sealed box.
