Dozens of kittens rescued in the wake of Hurricane Irma were welcomed to the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s shelter last night after being flown in from storm-damaged Palm Beach, Fla.
Animal Rescue League spokesperson Michael DeFina said the kittens were shipped to the Hub from the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League so the organization could make more room for other animals that were abandoned or injured as a result of the powerful storm.
“Just making ourselves available is important,” DeFina said. “Taking these animals from the shelters in Florida allows for them to care for stray and hurt animals from the storm area.”
DeFina said the kittens will be quarantined and examined and should be available for adoption early next week.
