WISCONSIN – Staff at the Vernon County Humane Society are currently caring for kittens that were found in a covered, plastic tote inside a parked van in Viroqua.
A Richland Center woman will now face charges related to this case.
Jennie Klar is the Manager over at the Vernon County Humane Society. She explained that two of the ten kittens that were turned into the facility did not survive the first night.
“My understanding is that the people that found the kittens were pouring warm water over them, and the water was red just from the damage that the fleas were doing to these kittens already.”
The remaining eight kitties are doing well, but will likely need some special treatments for at least the next few weeks.
“They were completely and utterly flea-infested,” explained Klar.
For now, the kittens are being closely monitored and are separated from the rest of the animals at the facility to keep any fleas from spreading.
“In reality, once they got some water and some food, they’ve really perked up.”
The kittens will eventually be up for adoption when they’re healthy enough.
