Pennsylvania SPCA

Humane officers say a kitten was burned over a third of its body after being intentionally set on fire in Kensington.

The Pennsylvania SPCA says the injured black and white kitten was found on the 3100 block of F Street near McPherson Square Park today. It is approximately 4 to 5 weeks old.

“This is a horrendous act of cruelty to inflict on a helpless animal,” said George Bengal, Director of Law Enforcement.

A humane law enforcement officer brought the kitten back to the SPCA headquarters where veterinarians administered medical care and pain medications.

The feline was then transferred to a rescue partner to receive intensive care for its injuries.  They are hopeful that the kitten will survive.

Police are searching for the person(s) responsible.
