On June 1, 2008, volunteers of Happy Home Animal Sanctuary were notified of a serious situation at a Las Vegas apartment complex. When the volunteers arrived, what they found was horrifying. Six young kittens had been sealed into a block wall using urethane foam, a type of insulation that hardens around anything it touches.
The volunteers were able to rescue the kittens, but unfortunelately one was lost due to the damage from the foam insulation. They worked long through the night trying to clean up and stablize the remaining kittens and the work continues today.
The event was covered on Las Vegas channel 3 KVBC yesterday afternoon and their article can be found at http://www.kvbc.com/Global/story.asp?S=8419110.
We will be posting more information about the kittens and their recovery, so please check back soon… or better yet, register as a member of our blog.
