Pickering Animal Services asks for help after abandoned cat found in North Pickering

Posted on Thursday March 17, 2022

Pickering, ON, March 17, 2022 – Pickering Animal Services is asking for the public’s help after a male cat was abandoned in North Pickering.

On March 16 at approximately 8 am, Operations staff were driving in the area of Concession 7 and Brock Road, and spotted a male cat at the side of the road with all of his belongings dumped beside him.

Abandoning an animal like this is extremely neglectful, as they are left to fend for themselves against coyotes, vehicular traffic, and the weather.

“We cannot comprehend this act of cruelty. If you are looking to rehome your pet, please bring them into the shelter,” said Lindsey Narraway, Supervisor, Animal Services. “We will ensure they are kept safe and taken care of, giving them the best chance at finding a new home.”

This beautiful cat will be cared for at the shelter, assessed medically, and when ready, find his forever home.

Animal Services is asking anyone who has information on where this cat may have come from to contact them at 905.427.0093.
