FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace SPCA is looking for help to care for another cat that was thrown out of a vehicle.

The SPCA says ‘Prairie Rose’ was left to be buried alive in a construction zone.

“Luckily, a worker heard Prairie Rose’s tiny meows for help and rescued the kitten, who was obviously in agony and rushed to the vet. Now, BC SPCA North Peace Branch staff are hoping the public can help little Prairie Rose bloom into a healthy, active and happy cat.”

‘Prairie Rose’ suffered a broken pelvis and a prepubic tendon rupture that allowed her intestines to fall into her stomach cavity.

The surgery and medical costs related to Prairie Rose’s care are expected to exceed $2,000.

BC SPCA North Peace Branch manager Candace Buchamer says the case of Prairie Rose is just one of many happening lately.

“Prairie Rose is one of six kittens who has been thrown from a vehicle and abandoned on the area’s rural roads recently.

We just want to re-iterate that throwing any animal from a vehicle and leaving it to suffer, in pain, is never an acceptable solution to unwanted pets or litters.”
