On Wednesday night, someone dumped a tub full of cats outside of a shelter in Pennsylvania. On Thursday morning, A.W.S.O.M. posted images of the plastic tote, and the cats who were inside, writing:
Last evening, sometime between the hours of 6 and 7, this tote was dumped at the end of our driveway.
The staff is usually not on the property at this time, but last night we were and we are so incredibly thankful for that.
Describing what was found inside:
These four cats were stuffed in a tote, cold, with no food or water and no where to relieve themselves except onto each other. If they had spent the entire night like that out in the cold, the outcome may have been completely different.
With a demand to stop abandonment from this from happening in the future:
We know these are hard times, but THIS is NOT okay. We have resources, we have food, we have ways to help or other avenues to offer if we can’t.
These cats could have died a horrible death last night.
But today, on Christmas Eve, we are just going to focus on that fact that we were here, they are safe now, and nothing like that will ever happen to them again. They are warm, safe, fed, and recuperating in a foster home. One of the little girls has a deformity of her front limbs, but all seem to be doing well. We will update more after the holidays!
