Nearly 2 Dozen Cats Left In Crates In Front Of Brooklyn Shelter

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn animal shelter is trying to find homes for nearly two dozen cats that were bizarrely left in front of the center.

As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, on Aug. 15, workers at Animal Care & Control of NYC’s Brooklyn shelter found 11 cats in milk crates taped shut and put in shopping carts. Three days later, another 12 cats were delivered in the same manner.

“We’ve taken these cats in, but there are better ways for members of the community to surrender pets or bring in stray animals,” Risa Weinstock, the facility’s executive director, told the New York Daily News.
