PHOENIX - A kitten and its siblings are in foster care after one was discovered stuck in a wall at a South Phoenix Humane Society facility last weekend.
AHS spokeswoman Ashliegh Goebel said staff and volunteers at the Campus for Compassion heard cries coming through the walls near the adoptions area and called EAMT Andy Gallo to see if there actually was a kitten in the wall or they were imagining things.
Once Gallo climbed up into the rafters he discovered a kitten down below, in one of the columns, Goebel said.
It was determined that the 5-week-old kitten was part of a litter of four free-roaming kittens that were born on the roof of the shelter.
The other three kittens were rescued as well and have since been taken to the Sunnyslope Campus to be examined by a veterinarian at the Second Chance Animal Hospital.
Goebel said the kittens appear to be in good health and will go to a foster home to gain weight until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered.
They appear to be semi-feral and will need socialization before they find new homes, Goebel said.
