‘Ottawa’ SPCA Seeks Help After cat Found in Apartment Dumpster
The Ontario SPCA is asking the public for help after a cat was found in inside a carrier case buried under rubble in a dumpster in Ottawa’s west end earlier this month.
The 15-year-old long-haired tabby was rescued after a passerby heard meowing coming from inside the dumpster near an apartment building on Carling Avenue between Grenon Avenue and Moore Avenue on Mar. 14.
The cat was underweight, dehydrated and suffering from diabetes when it was rescued, the animal protection agency says.
It was wearing a frayed red collar with four bells.
“There is no excuse for failing to care for your animals,” said Jennifer Bluhm, deputy chief inspector, Ontario SPCA.
“If you find yourself in a position where you can no longer care for your animals, contact your local Ontario SPCA animal centre or humane society to discuss your options.”
The SPCA is asking anyone with information to contact them at 1-888-668-7722 ext. 327 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
