THREE kittens have been dumped behind ASDA supermarket in Brierley Hill.

The kittens - aged about ten-weeks-old - were discovered near the Pearson Street store by a member of the public on Monday morning (November 8) after they had been left in a cage behind some bins.

They were collected by RSPCA inspector Claire Daley and are now being cared for at the charity’s animal centre in Birmingham.

Claire said the act was extremely callous to dump them.

“Apart from needing treatment for fleas, they don’t have any other health issues, and will no doubt recover well from their ordeal with a little TLC,” said Claire.

“It was extremely callous to dump them when there are many organisations who can offer support with rehoming.”

The RSPCA is urging anyone with information about the incident to get in touch via the charity’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

Claire added: “Incidents like this highlight, yet again, the importance of getting kittens and female cats neutered.”

Last year the RSPCA rehomed 17,868 cats, which is 53 a day or two every hour, including 915 in the West Midlands.

The charity’s centres and branches are caring for more felines than any pet, with nearly 3,000 coming into the society’s care during the first eight months of this year.
