Kitten Wrapped In Duct Tape Found Among 38 Neglected Animals In Pennsylvania Home

Sharing is caring!

The entire Chester County in Pennsylvania was left in shock when rescuers found a total of 38 animals living in horrendous conditions in a single home.

It was even more appalling that among these neglected animals was a one-month-old kitten named Roo, wrapped in duct tape and missing one of her front legs. 

It all started when the Brandywine Valley SPCA received a report about a stray dog in Coatesville. But, little did the rescuers know, they would soon make a shocking discovery.

The report led the rescuers to the discovery of a dog, a turtle, a rabbit, and 36 cats and kittens, all living in one home in dire conditions.

The poor kitten Roo was in the worst condition, desperately needing urgent care. Heartbroken, the rescuers instantly took her under their wing and rushed her to the vet.

Roo, who weighed only 1.5 pounds, was fragile, but she had a strong will to live. Thanks to the vet’s dedication, she successfully underwent emergency surgery and continued her recovery in a safe foster home.

Among all the rescued animals, Roo was in the worst possible condition, but sadly others suffered as well. 

Tragically, one kitten passed away, and other animals suffered from various health problems, including infections, untreated wounds, respiratory issues, and similar conditions.

Fortunately, thanks to the rescuers’ quick reaction, all the animals were rescued and provided with urgent medical care. 

This situation truly left everyone devastated and heartbroken. But what offered a glimmer of hope was that the individual responsible for such cruelty was identified.

The individual faced multiple charges –  one felony count of aggravated cruelty and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty and neglect regarding Roo’s case, with additional charges pending for the rest of the animals found.

On the brighter side, all the rescued animals will be available for adoption once they completely heal and recover.
