Thirteen kittens found abandoned in a duffel bag outside the PAWS Chicago shelter over the stifling-hot weekend are alive and doing well.
A volunteer discovered the moving duffel bag in the North Side animal shelter’s parking lot Sunday afternoon and found the kittens inside, according to a post on PAWS Chicago’s Facebook page.
“Thankfully, all 13 kittens are alive and well!” according to the post. The temperature reached a high of 82 degrees Sunday in Chicago.
The kittens are being cared for at the shelter’s Rescue & Recovery Center while they wait to be placed in foster homes.
