Emergency rescue needed for pregnant tortie cat at high kill Calif. shelter

This pregnant cat was turned over to Animal Control in this filthy pet crate.
Rene Hersey

This tortoiseshell cat is friendly, pregnant, and in danger of being euthanized at the San Bernardino City Animal Control later this week because her owner decided he didn't want to deal with kittens.

The tortie was "dumped" at the shelter on July 2 and will be available for adoption on July 10. Anytime after that, this soon-to-be feline family could be scheduled to die.

Dropped off in a filthy crate, her future looks bleak, however earlier on Monday, the Feline Underground Network offered to come to her rescue with the following provisions:

"WE ARE COMPLETELY FULL AND CANNOT TAKE HER UNLESS WE HAVE A FOSTER. She NEEDS pledges, rescue plan, and a foster ASAP. Please share!!! The foster can be in Los Angeles, San Bernardino-Riverside, Santa Clarita, Palmdale-Lancaster or San Fernando Valley areas."
