THE STORY:

A man came to the Humane Society of the North Bay on October 20 and dropped a green bag on the deck — he refused to provide any information, just dropped the bag, walked to his car and drove away. When shelter staff opened the bag, they drew a collective horrified breath — three tiny kittens lay there, soaking wet as if they’d been dunked in water. One wasn’t moving very much and had a hair tie on his back legs. These kittens — now named Sabrina, Pumpkin and Salem — had most likely been used as “bait kittens”. Heinous dog fighters bind their back legs with rubber bands, rendering them helpless to run from dogs they are training to fight. Attacking kittens and other helpless small animals is part of the dog fighting training process. “Some very horrible people in the Vallejo-Benicia area are fighting dogs, and they’re using poor helpless kittens to train them. Thankfully we’re able to give these three kittens a chance at life. We are heartsick thinking about their siblings and parents, what they’re going through right now. And we’re worried about the fighting dogs, too. They don’t want to fight, they’re being abused and tortured into fighting. We need to find these people and put them in jail and free these animals from their own versions of hell.” Sabrina, Salem and Pumpkin’s back paws are injured from their legs being tied together, they’re malnourished, anemic from flea infestations, and they have respiratory infections. And they’re very, very traumatized. Sabrina is the only girl and isn’t doing very well — she can’t walk on her back feet because they’re so painful. She’s been hospitalized and is receiving blood, fluid and antibiotics. It’ll be touch and go this weekend. Salem and Pumpkin are in better shape, but also have injured paws from the rubber bands. They’re all very thin. Despite the trauma they’ve been through, you can see they have strong spirits. You can tell they know they’re safe. Salem has found his voice and is already getting rambunctious. Pumpkin is a bit more cautious and is taking a “wait and see” attitude. And Sabrina, even though she is struggling, she wants to survive. They all have a spark in their eyes, they’re very special.
