Shore Animal Control is trying to find who dumped six kittens in the woods last weekend in Lower Township.

A post on Facebook says the six kittens were abandoned in the woods near the bridge that crosses over to West Cape May and left with a small amount of food.

Apparently, three people nearby found the kittens when they ran up to them crying and took them to Animal Control.

Why would someone do such a heartless thing as dump six kittens in the woods when they could simply have taken them to an animal shelter and surrendered them instead?

As the Facebook post says, someone in the area must know something about where these kittens came from and who is responsible for this animal dumping.

If you can be of any help in finding those responsible, call Shore Animal Control at 800-351-1822.
