The Ontario SPCA is seeking information from the public after two cats were found abandoned in tightly knotted garbage bags outside a veterinary hospital in Orangeville.
The cats were found at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 28, 2017 by staff at the veterinary hospital, located near Broadway and Mill Street. It is believed they were dumped earlier that day. The cats were found inside a blue closed-style litter box that had been double bagged with two black garbage bags and left at the back of the building. The cats were immediately assessed by a veterinarian and have since been re-homed.
Both animals are neutered and declawed male Siamese-type cats. They were not wearing collars and are not microchipped.
“Abandoning your animal is never an option. If you find yourself in a position where you can no longer care for your animals, contact your local animal centre or humane society to discuss your options,” says Alison Green, Senior Inspector, Ontario SPCA. “If anyone knows anything about these cats or witnessed anything unusual in the area where they were found, we urge them to come forward.”
Anyone with information that could assist with this investigation is urged to contact 310-SPCA (7722) immediately.
