As the weather gets colder, more animals are being left outside, according to the Humane Society of Utah.
Large groups of cats and kittens were discovered in boxes outside the Humane Society's Murray facility twice earlier this month, according to FOX 13. Staffers also discovered a statement from someone stating that they were unable to care for the kitties.
"We want the community to know that it doesn't have to come to this stage," Juli Ulvestad, Director of Shelter Operations, told FOX 13. "Please reach out to us if you are a pet owner in need of assistance so that we can be a part of the solution."
