When you work in animal rescue, surprises come with the territory – such as a mysterious box of kittens. Last month, Wayne, a volunteer at Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions, experienced this firsthand. As he arrived at the shelter one morning, he encountered a mysterious cardboard box left outside the door.

A Mysterious Delivery

The box bore a simple handwritten note, declaring, “free kittens.” Without hesitation, the shelter staff swiftly brought the box inside, eager to assess the situation. Inside, they found a precious cargo: tiny kittens, barely two weeks old, with eyes still closed tightly shut.

Mixed Emotions

Learning about the unexpected arrivals, Kimberly Wade the shelter’s marketing manager, described feeling a complex mix of emotions. Anger, frustration, and sadness mingled with gratitude that the kittens were brought to safety rather than left to fend for themselves on the streets.

Nurturing and Growth

The kittens got the much-needed care while they were safe inside the shelter’s walls. After being placed in a foster home, where they were kept warm in an incubator, they flourished even more. Evidently the kittens showed resiliency. They grew stronger every day despite having a difficult start.

A Call to Action

Kimberly Wade hopes that this story serves as a reminder of the vital role each person can play in supporting animal shelters. Whether through donations, sharing stories on social media, volunteering or fostering, every act of kindness makes a difference. Generally by alleviating some of the burden on shelters, individuals enable them to focus on providing care to those animals most in need.
