A charity is appealing to pet owners to seek help if they can’t cope with their animals after a litter of kittens were found dumped over the weekend.

The Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green, are caring for the five four-week-old kittens discovered in a crumpled, open box in the bin area of a housing estate in Westbourne Park on Saturday.

The Mayhew has witnessed an increase in dumped animals, especially kittens, and are urging owners to seek help rather than callously throw their pets out in the street.

The charity runs many initiatives to help pet owners and provides free and low cost neutering appointments in order to tackle the pet overpopulation crisis, and the subsequent high number of abandoned young litters being tossed aside with the rubbish.

Zoe Edwards, the Mayhew’s managing animal welfare officer, said: “Over the last month we have dealt with so many cases of abandoned, young animals.

“With a charity like The Mayhew offering help and advice to all pet owners and providing low cost and free neutering and vaccinations, there is no excuse for the people who are continuing to discard their pets.

“We are appealing for everyone to realise that neutering saves lives as a neutered pet means no unwanted litters. Anyone can approach us for advice and we are always happy to help.”
