Discarded Black Kitten Named ‘Midnight’ is Now in Caring Hands

“While black cats are sometimes difficult to re-home, dumping a kitten in a park, or anywhere other than bringing it to someone who can provide care, is unacceptable and cruel.”                                  – Kevin Strooband, Executive Director of the Lincoln County Humane Society

News from the Lincoln County Humane Society in Niagara, Ontario

Posted October 1st, 2020 on Niagara At Large

A cold-hearted individual visited the Murray Street Park in Grimsby this October 1st and discarded something valuable.

Shortly after, Lisa, who lives in Grimsby, was walking her dog in the park and noticed a cat carrier.  Lisa investigated and quickly realized, a small, less than 1 kilogram black kitten, was left in the park with nothing but the cat carrier.  Lisa picked up the kitten and promptly delivered it to the Lincoln County Humane Society. 

Looking for someone out there who might know how this cute little kitten  ended up abandoned in a cage in a Grimsby, Ontario  park.

An exam by LCHS staff found Midnight (affectionately named by LCHS staff) to be healthy and in fine shape.  While this potential cruelty case was reported to the Ministry of the Solicitor General, Animal Cruelty hotline, they were unable to receive our complaint as an owner is unknown.

The LCHS will provide care for Midnight and if an owner is not found in four available for adoption to a loving home.

“While black cats are sometimes difficult to re-home, dumping a kitten in a park, or anywhere other than bringing it to someone who can provide care, is unacceptable and cruel” said Kevin Strooband, Executive Director of the Lincoln County Humane Society. “Bring any unwanted pets to your local Humane Society or rescue for re-homing”.
