Adoption Offers Pour in for Kitten Rescued From Dumpster

Little Lucy suffered terrible cruelty, but now calls are pouring in to the Oregon Humane Society with offers to adopt her. The 12-week-old kitten is a survivor. Last month, she was found in a dumpster in Portland after being shot. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the shocking act of cruelty. “If there is a silver lining in this case, it is the huge outpouring of community support for Lucy,” said OHS Executive Director Sharon Harmon in a statement. "Everybody wants to adopt Lucy," concurred shelter spokesman David Lytle. Veterinarians are holding off on the surgery Lucy needs to give her time to grow bigger and stronger, and it will still be two to three weeks before she can be adopted. “We must remain cautious, but we are optimistic that Lucy will make a full recovery,” said Dr. Jacqueline Blanchette, lead veterinarian at OHS. — Read it at Oregon Live
