Kitten Set on Fire Memorial Day Weekend

It was Saturday night on Memorial Day weekend when people are relaxed, having fun, enjoying each other's company. But some people's idea of having fun is perverted.

A young male kitten had somehow gotten into the wrong hands and was then mistreated and abused. It was obvious that he had been unsuccessfully set on fire. The Society's Newark Animal Care Center was contacted at 10 p.m. to retrieve the helpless kitty that was found in someone's backyard. Society Animal Control Officer Alex Kelly responded to the scene and rescued the frightened kitten. His face was blackened from the fire, his ears were scorched, and his whiskers had been burned.

He is presently in the Society's Medical Dept. for treatment and care.

Thanks to the Society's Res-Q Fund, donations from this program are used to offset the medical expenses to help the sick, the injured, the abused victims that arrive at our doors each day. We call him Blaze and the 3 month old kitten needs your help and a home.

June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month. Won't you help us to help him? Please contact us if interested in giving a lifetime of love and protection to Blaze; in return he will light up your life. Please reference File N-92653-M (Newark).
