CANFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – Officials at Angels for Animals say they will try to press charges after two kittens were left in a bin outside of their building.
The kittens were found in a tote after being abandoned at Angels for Animals after 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
The shelter says they are open 24/7 to take animals in need, but there are proper surrender protocols that need to be followed, and they are always there to help.
“These people left these kittens outside in the cold. They had a water bottle in there that leaked all over the container. Those kittens were sitting in a cold, wet tote,” said Diane Less, founder of Angels for Animals. “It’s not that we won’t help them. It’s not that we won’t take them, but that’s not how that works. We want these animals inside in the warm environment.”
The kittens are now safe in the shelter and are receiving medical care.
Less says they do have surveillance footage of the kittens being left and they are going to pursue abandonment charges.
