Dozens of kittens moved to Weaverville shelter after COVID-19 outbreak

The ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is assisting with the care and placement of more than 70 kittens transported out of Valley River Humane Society in Marble after the shelter was impacted by COVID-19.

After learning that staff members tested positive for the coronavirus, the shelter relocated nearly all of the animals in their care as they reduced the number of in-person staff.

The kittens, ranging in age from 10 to 18 weeks old, were transported to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Weaverville, where they are receiving critical care and undergoing a two-week quarantine until they can be made available for adoption.
