In early May, officers from the Washington Humane Society's Humane Law Enforcement Department learned of two kittens that had been victims of extreme cruelty. When presented with the kittens, the officers found that neither could walk and all of their toes on each paw were infected.

The kittens were taken immediately to a local emergency animal hospital, where surgeons found that each of the kittens' claws had been ripped from their feet. In the process of a cruel and unnecessary home declawing procedure most of the bones in each foot were crushed, including each of the kittens' four legs. Doctors believe the breaks occurred when kittens struggled to escape.

Unfortunately, due to the severity of the injuries the kittens sustained, veterinarians determined that the bones could not be repaired and rehabilitation would not have been possible. Both kittens were humanely euthanized.


Now, this month of August 2012, justice is being served to a Washington DC resident who was arrested on two counts of felony animal cruelty. He is suspected of torturing these two 8-week old kittens in his home.

The Washington Humane Society finds this horrific act intolerable and will fight for justice to be served to the fullest extent of the law.

Our Intolerable Cruelty to Kittens Memorial is a way for you to aid the Washington Humane Society in our efforts to educate our community about animal welfare issues, to stop cruelty and to prevent future incidents such as this while remembering these precious kittens.

Thank you for caring!
