ABC News 13 in West Virginia reported that 40 cats and kittens were dumped near a local shelter. The Cabell County animal rescue group is asking for assistance to help the cats get to safe homes.

Little Victories Animal Rescue Shelter posted on  Facebook that the shelter was full and didn’t have room to keep the cats. Unfortunately, the shelter cannot use fosters because the cats have tested positive for Panleuk. The cats are under veterinary care.

The shelter is asking for donations to help cover medical and food costs for the animals. Many kittens are just hours old and some of the other cats are currently pregnant.

The cats underwent medical examinations and are under close watch. Because it is unclear which jurisdiction the cats were dumped in, police are still investigating. The animal shelter has continued to provide updates on Facebook.
