TRINITY COUNTY, Calif. - Staff at the Trinity County Animal Shelter say a female cat and her five kittens were abandoned in front of their shelter Sunday morning.
Staff says that on Saturday, May 30 at approximately 6:45 a.m. a white truck left a box outside the gate of the shelter. Inside that box was a female cat and five kittens.
They say their shelter was closed and no staff was present. They say that by the time their first staff member arrived it was already raining heavily but luckily the kittens will dry out and hopefully be fine long term.
Staff says that their shelter is very full right now and they are working with as many people as they can but are limited in space and resources.
The Trinity County Shelters says they understand that their county has a large stray population but abandoning animals at their shelter is in no way helpful to their situation.
They advise the community to please not abandon their pets there and to please spay and neuter their animals.
