LOCKPORT – Three kittens recovered by Niagara County sheriff’s deputies Monday morning in a field near the old Summit Park Mall were put up for adoption later in the day by the Niagara SPCA.

Sheriff’s deputies received an anonymous call about the kittens which were found in a nylon pet carrying case wrapped in a plastic bag in the field.

The sheriff’s office put pictures of the kittens on the department’s Facebook page. SPCA officials said they are nearly overwhelmed by cats and dogs abandoned during the warm weather months and quickly put the kittens up for adoption. Meanwhile the Niagara County Sheriff’s office is looking for any information about who might have abandoned the kittens. Calls to the sheriff’s office can be made at 438-3393.
