VANCOUVER — Nine kittens found abandoned at a construction site in Vancouver are up for adoption.

The BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC SPCA) said the kittens were found during a bitter cold snap and were in two boxes taped shut. The kittens ranged in age from 12 weeks to four months old.

“The temperatures were bitterly cold when these kittens were left at a construction site with nothing but a cardboard box for protection. When someone working at the construction site opened the boxes, they found the kittens huddled together for warmth and immediately brought them to the BC SPCA,” BC SPCA Vancouver animal centre manager Jodi Dunlop said in a statement.

“People need to know that it is illegal to abandon an animal. Thankfully there was someone at the construction site to find these kittens and bring them to us,” added BC SPCA protection and stakeholder relations senior officer Eileen Drever.

The kittens were immediately taken to a veterinarian for examination and one of the animals had a prior, untreated injury and couldn’t be saved, Dunlop said.

“One of the other kittens we named Prancer was also suffering from an injury to her right front leg that is weeks’ old and, unfortunately, the leg will have to be amputated. Three other kittens required medical attention as well,” she said.

The kittens will remain at the BC SPCA’s Vancouver animal centre until they are fully recovered and will be available for adoption within the next two weeks.
