PETITION TARGET: Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett
A cruel individual sprayed an eight-week-old kitten over the face and body with foam before heartlessly dumping the poor creature in a trash can in Washington County, Oregon.
A garbage collector discovered the terrified kitten as the worker did his rounds on May 3. When a trash can wouldn’t empty, he investigated, finding the cat hanging upside down from the back legs, covered in foam and unable to move. He knew the cat was still alive as he could hear pitiful cries.
Staff at the garbage disposal facility worked to remove the solidified foam before taking the cat to the Hillsboro Vet Clinic for further treatment. A vet at the clinic told FOX12 that the kitten’s entire head and face were covered with foam; if the cat had not been rescued, he would likely have suffocated.
This innocent kitten is lucky to be alive; whoever did this is clearly dangerous and needs to be caught before they hurt, and potentially kill, any more animals.
Sign this petition urging Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett to use every resource to find the person responsible and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Cpl. Brandon Talbott at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office on 503-846-2700.
