Dogtown employee rescues dumped kittens

Seven kittens dumped in a shopping bag along the R511 in Broederstroom were rescued by employees from Dogtown shortly before lockdown and the three that survived are now in the care of the Harties Feral Cat Rescue (HFRC).

“One of our workers picked up a very small kitten on his way to work. We realised that there must be more and we sent a team out to look for them. Six more were found in a plastic shopping bag,” said Elanza Morgan of Dogtown.

The kittens were handed over to Harties Feral Cat Rescue as they still have to be bottle fed.

“Unfortunately only three kittens survived,” said Joanne Kontaxopoulos-Rabe, founder of HFRC. The kittens are currently in
foster care.

HFRC, like all the other animal welfare organisation, now need support. If you can help with cat food or donations to help feed the hundreds of feral cats the organisation is looking after, please WhatsApp Joanne on 0726815556 or visit www.hartiesferalcats.co.za.
