Saginaw Community Rallies for Cat Found with Padlocked Chain, Seeks Information on Animal Cruelty CaseSource: Saginaw County Animal Care & Control

In a troubling incident in Saginaw, a cat was discovered with a chain padlocked around its neck, now prompting a search for information by local animal welfare officers. Saginaw County Animal Care and Control (SCACC) found the cat ensnared by a porch railing on the morning of June 27, with the abusive restraint removed shortly thereafter, ensuring the cat's well-being. According to the Saginaw County Animal Care & Control, the feline was tangled in the chain on Spruce Street near Garey Street. The agency is actively seeking any insights into the ownership of the cat and the circumstances leading to its predicament.

Details released by ABC12 indicate that the chain and padlock, that were constricting the animal, have since been safely removed. SCACC's outreach to the public includes a request for assistance not only in the information-gathering aspect but also in the form of donations. These funds are solicited to help cover the special medical care the cat now requires due to the ordeal.

The search for answers extends to understanding how the situation occurred. SCACC is asking anyone with knowledge about the cat’s owner or the set of circumstances that resulted in the collar of chains to reach out. Communication can be made via the shelter's direct line, email, or through their Facebook page, as detailed by WNEM.
