CENTER TWP. ― The Beaver County Humane Society is asking the public for information about a cat found confined in a “worn and filthy” carrier in a New Brighton dumpster.
A male tabby with white and brown fur was found in a dumpster near New Brighton’s Dollar General in a dirty carrier “much too small for his size” with two empty food and water bowls, BCHS staff said Wednesday. He was coated in his feces and urine, which were found throughout the carrier.
He had been left in the carrier for “quite a while,” according to BCHS.

“The cat was found by a good Samaritan who brought him to us for medical evaluation,” said Wendi Stafford, BCHS humane police officer. “We determined that while the cat doesn’t seem to have any obvious outward injuries, he was suffering greatly from neglect.”
The cat, estimated to be 2-3 years old, is currently undergoing evaluation and treatment.

“After experiencing such unimaginable trauma, we know that preparing him for an eventual adoption into a loving forever home may be challenging,” said BCHS staff.
The Beaver County Humane Society asks anyone with information about the cat or who may have dumped him to contact the Humane Investigations department at 724-775-5801, ext. 123.
