Thanks to the joint effort of some Daytona Beach Good Samaritans, four kittens rescued on Monday from a pile of trash are safely in the care of a no-kill shelter in Florida.
The 3-week-old kittens were found in a box left on North Halifax Avenue in a pile of trash. The person who abandoned the kittens had taped up the box and poked holes in the side of it and then placed the box inside a trash bin, where it was found by garbage men. The men removed the box and a couple that lives nearby offered to take the kittens to the ARNI Foundation in Daytona Beach.
ARNI Foundation representative stated in an interview with WESH2 News
“It’s very disturbing that somebody would do something like that. Just throw them away? Just throw them away. Innocent babies just put them in the trash like nothing, like they were garbage.”
The kittens will be placed up for adoption when they’re old enough. In the meantime, a Facebook post invited anyone interested in the wee ones to visit their shelter.
The ARNI Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no kill shelter for cats and dogs, founded in 1999. Since they have been open thousands of dogs and cats have been saved.
A huge thank you goes out to the garbage collectors and the nice couple who made sure the kittens were in safe hands.
