The East Greenwich Animal Protection League has taken in three kittens rescued after a house fire in Cranston Friday. A fourth kitten and their mother were also rescued and all the felines were put on oxygen, but only the three kittens survived.
The Cranston animal control officer asked EGAPL to take the animals. EGAPL brought the kittens to Ocean State Animal Hospital on South County Trail for two days of specialized care. All three kittens are now being bottle fed in a foster home. After they are able to eat on their own, the kittens will be transferred to the EG Animal Hospital, new home of the EGAPL, to stay until they are old enough to be adopted.
The nonprofit organization has spent more than $1,500 on emergency care of the kittens. They are hoping for donations to help cover the unplanned expense. If you can help, go to the EGAPL website: http://www.egapl.org/.
Meanwhile, EGAPL head Tammy Flanagan has named the kittens Police, Fire and Rescue.
