Animals have feelings and deserve to be treated with respect. Abandoning or tossing animals out like trash is never the solution. A rescue team was contacted when a heartless person threw kittens in a dumpster.
Hope For Paws rescuers, JoAnn Wiltz and Lisa Arturo responded to a call about three kittens that were deliberately thrown in the trash. The team arrived at the scene and saw the huge dumpster that the kittens were in and knew they did not stand a chance of escaping on their own.
The dumpster was scheduled to be picked up and crushed the next day. There was only one solution, and that was to dive into the dumpster to rescue them. They assessed the trash pile before entering, to be sure that they did not step on one of the tiny kittens.

One of the rescuers peered into the trash and saw a tiny black kitten at the bottom of the dumpster chewing on some garbage. They scooped up the innocent kitten and continued to look for the remaining two. After sifting through trash and following the tiny meows, they found them.
However, the kittens were frightened and ran away when the rescuers tried to pick them up. Instead of trying to catch them by hand they placed a cage with food inside the dumpster. Finally, all three black kittens were captured and on their way to be examined.
The rescuers named the kittens Sardine, Salmon, and Squid. The baby kittens were fed and in good health. Fast forward six weeks and they are typical playful kittens that love to chase anything that moves. They are looking for their forever homes. If you are interested you can contact Room 8 Cats.
