DES MOINES, Iowa -- Animal Rescue League officials say someone intentionally put three young kittens in a dumpster and only one of the felines survived.

Construction workers on Des Moines’ east side were dumping big pieces of concrete into the dumpster when they heard meowing. One of the workers brought the basket of kittens to the ARL.

“Besides being against the law as cruel abandonment there is no excuse and no reason to do that there's the ARL and a number of others rescues...all around the state,” says Tom Colvin with the ARL.

The ARL is asking you to contact Animal Control if you have any information on who put the kittens in the dumpster.

In the meantime, the surviving kitten is being cared for by a foster family. He will be ready for adoption in about five weeks.

The ARL is taking suggestions for the kitten’s name on their Facebook page.
