The BC SPCA is hoping you can help give three tiny, underweight kittens found abandoned in a dumpster in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside a second chance at a happy ending.
“These three little kittens are small for their age and clearly had a traumatic start to life,” says Jodi Dunlop, manager, Vancouver BC SPCA. “They were left for dead in a box in a dumpster. We are so thankful to the good Samaritan who found them and the couple who stopped to help get them to the shelter for care.”
The three kittens were immediately brought to a veterinarian for treatment. It was determined that one of the kittens had a broken pelvis, trauma to the face which included bleeding in the eye and nostril and difficulty breathing. All three of the kittens were flea infested and had internal parasites.
When Petsecure learned about the kittens’ terrible experience, the company generously offered to match all medical donations up to $3,500 to help with their care and other animals who need urgent medical help.
“These kittens are so cute,” says Dunlop. “Despite what they have been through, the current prognosis for all three of the kittens is good.”
All of the kittens require a special feeding regimen because of their age and will be vaccinated, de-wormed and spayed or neutered. The kitten with the broken pelvis and trauma to the face will require an ongoing series of x-rays and pain control. They will be in the BC SPCA’s care for at least four weeks.
The BC SPCA is grateful to all the animal lovers who have generously supported efforts to help these abandoned kittens. The match from Petsecure has been surpassed which means the BC SPCA can help even more animals who need extraordinary medical care. Our thanks to everyone, and an extra big thanks to Petsecure, for supporting these three little kittens!
