A rescue organization in Canton is asking for donations after taking more than dozen of kittens. 

Animal Friends of Connecticut took in 21 kittens after the animals were stuffed into two crates and left by the steps of the 24-hour clinic early Sunday morning. The nearly two dozen kittens were abandoned outside of a veterinary center around 3 a.m. 

Since Monday, one of the kittens has died and Animal Friends of Connecticut said all of them are sick with upper respiratory infections. There are currently two vets working to help care for those kittens.

  • Canton Veterinary Emergency Center
  • 135 Dowd Ave. Canton 06109
