Children at the CT Humane Society’s summer program learned about animal rescue first hand when they helped rescue a young cat abandoned at the shelter on Thursday.

At about 10 am Thursday morning, kids attending the Connecticut Humane Society’s “Kindness Club” summer program, along with their teachers, found and helped rescue a five month old Siamese cat that was abandoned at the Society’s Newington location.

Soon after, it was reported that a Humane Society client found a Hewlett-Packard box next to their car. The box is believed to have been what the kitten was left in, thus the reason that the kids decided to then name him, “HP”.

“The education gained at the Kindness Club was surely set in to motion this morning as the kids clearly applied what they’ve recently learned by helping an abandoned pet” said Gordon Willard, Executive Director of the Connecticut Humane Society.

The cat will be held for the stray holding period of 5 days, as required by law. He will receive a full medical examination, vaccinations and neutering prior to being made available for adoption. Great job Kindness Club!
