Cats Dumped At New Jersey Shelter With $200 Cash And A Note

In New Jersey, there is an animal shelter that is looking for someone who dumped off kittens overnight at their door.

When workers came in around 6 o’clock on Thursday morning, they found the kittens at the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge in Oakland.

The staff members reported that the cats were shaking, frightened and visibly ill. They were left inside of a carrier that was closed with tape.

Police have been contacted and the kittens are receiving medical assistance.

A staff member also found two kittens a week ago inside a box at the back door of the dog kennel. Cash was also left with those cats but in that case, it was $50.
