Kittens in a box
Five kittens were found in a box near the Arkansas River on Sept. 7, 2018.

FREMONT COUNTY – Thanks to a Lake George man driving through Fremont County, five kittens are alive and will likely be adopted soon.

The Humane Society of Fremont County said the man stopped at the Spike Buck pull off along Highway 50 near Cotopaxi to use the restroom. When he came out, he noticed a box on the ground in front of the door.

He picked it up and realized five scared little kittens were inside!

The Humane Society wrote in a Facebook post, “We can only imagine what might have happened to these 5 youngsters had someone visiting our area had not brought them to us,”

The Humane Society thanked the man and said the kittens are now safe at the shelter.
