Teens save kittens from abusers

Posted: Updated:
A family of kittens is regaining its strength after surviving being thrown from a window in a Detroit Lakes neighborhood. They were saved by a band of teenagers this weekend.

"We have a lifetime commitment to every animal that comes through these doors," Sue Fiste, Executive Director at the Marshmallow Foundation at Lucky Dog Rescue in Detroit Lakes, said.

She can recount each story stacked in the crates at Lucky Dog. The animals were brought in due to frost bite, heat stroke, neglect and abuse. One hundred dogs, cats, kittens and puppies who deserve a shot at life and an opportunity Sue can't deny.

"I can’t make myself do that. I can't. When I know we're at our limit and we don't really have room, I work really hard to get them at least placed in foster care," she said.

The Marshmallow Foundation at the Detroit Lakes pound has hit capacity, but Sue made room for four more this weekend.

"We were going to the sandwich shop for my birthday and on our way back, we saw this little kitten walking across the road" Brittany Ginnaty, of Detroit Lakes, said. She wished for a kitten that morning but never imagined it would fall into her life.

"My friend emma, she turns around and she saw them throw the kitten about 20 feet away onto the sidewalk, face first.

One kitten was bleeding from the nose and mouth. The bunch was crying and shivering. Brittany and her friends called the police, brought the kittens to the pound and filed a police report.

"I want people to be nicer to animals," she said. "I know we can't stop from harming each other, but at least, we could do something to save the animals."

The police were never able to get any confession that the animals belonged to anyone in the neighborhood. No charged will be filed.

But the family of kittens needs a home, the Marshmallow Foundation needs help, and a hundred more animals need hope. You can help by clicking here.
