WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -

The Rose Hope Animal Refuge is asking for the public’s help after five kittens were found left outside a Petsmart in Waterbury.

Alicia Kenworthy, a volunteer for the Rose Hope Animal Refuge, said the kittens were found inside a cardboard box that was closed tightly with packaging tape. The box only had one hole poked for the kittens to breathe.

A Petsmart employee reportedly found the box outside on a cold winter morning recently.

Kenworthy said the kittens are about 3-and-a-half months old, and two male kittens are ready for adoption.

The two kittens have been named Spot and Leo, and they have been vaccinated and examined by a veterinarian.

Anyone interested in adopting the kittens should call 203-597-1236.
