Kittens Abandoned In Box By Road

Posted: Updated:

GRANT COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) Two kittens were left abandoned in a closed box near a Grant County food pantry Monday.

The box was found underneath a sign for an animal shelter, but that sign was not close to the shelter.

Mike Tracy, a volunteer at Helping Hands Food Pantry, told LEX 18 that he noticed the box marked “kitchen” as he was leaving Monday afternoon.

I just happened to stop to see if it was supposed to be one of ours, a donation, or what it might be,” said Tracy.

He opened the box and found two kittens inside, one was scratching to get out and the other was barely moving.

“It was well up into the 90s with the heat index. The sun was beaming down on that box and one of the kittens wasn't even moving it was just lethargic,” said Tracy.

Tracy took the kittens down to the animal shelter where they were treated and placed into a foster home for the night, but the shelter says that one of the kittens did not survive.

The shelter says that they hope this incident will teach people that this is not the proper way to bring animals to the shelter.
