The Ontario SPCA Midland & District Animal Centre is looking for funds to help care for two adult cats and 14 kittens left in boxes on its doorstep.
The kittens are believed to be between six to eight months of age.
They were discovered – dirty, malnourished and infested with fleas – by centre staff on Thursday morning. All have been bathed, fed, and given a clean bill of health.
“These cats deserve to find loving homes where they will be cared for,” says Caytlynn Croisier, Manager, Ontario SPCA Midland & District Animal Centre. “We encourage anyone who is struggling to care for their animals to reach out to us to learn about options and resources before the situation gets to the level of desperation where animals are abandoned.”
Rehabilitating the cats will take several weeks, so the Midland & District Animal Centre is asking for donations to help cover the cost of their care. Donations can be made in person at the animal centre, which is located at 15979 Highway 12 East in Port McNicoll, or online at support.ontariospca.ca/16cats.
If you have any information about who abandoned the cats, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
