Pregnant cat gives birth in a box after being dumped at RSPCA shelter
On 30th August 2017, a Wilson Security officer was making his rounds in Lonsdale, when he noticed a box that had been dumped outside the gates of RSPCA SA's shelter. When he looked inside he was shocked to find an adult cat and five newborn kittens. He immediately alerted RSPCA staff and used a blanket to keep the vulnerable cat and kittens as warm as possible.
When staff arrived on site, they found evidence that mum had given birth in the box, but found only four kittens. Mum and one of her kittens had disappeared. They took the kittens into care immediately and searched for mum and her remaining kitten for hours. Thankfully the RSPCA staff found mum with her fifth kitten, and the family was reunited and recovering in RSPCA's care.
It is truly amazing that the kittens survived the cold night, thanks to the quick response of RSPCA staff and the security officer. Just another story about how the RSPCA care for vulnerable, sick and injured animals every day and need our support. Keep reading for donation details...
RSPCA Donations Drive
Seeing as we're 'Going Wild with Greven' this year, we have chosen the RSPCA SA as our charity partner for 2017.
Over the coming months Greven & Co will be taking collections of donations for the RSPCA to help them look after the hundreds of animals in their care. Please see our list of suggested donation items (requested by the RSPCA themselves, below), though feel free to also donate anything else you feel would be beneficial for the animals. Both new and pre-loved items are perfectly acceptable, though please be mindful of the quality/condition of second-hand items before donating. Ask yourself if you would be happy to give that item (toy/blanket/bed etc.) to your own pet? If so, the RSPCA will gladly accept it as a donation!
Collections will be taken at our office during our business hours of 9am-5pm on weekdays until the end of October 2017.
Help us to do all we can to help save and rehabilitate South Australia's animals! Thank you for your generosity and assistance for this important cause to Greven & Co.
