"Abandoning an animal is a crime and very cruel," spcaLA president Madeline Bernstein told KABC. "The kitten could have easily died inside the mailbox."
Veterinary staff at the shelter jumped into action to get Brett well. He was put into foster care where he was bottle-fed until he could eat on his own.
Now 2 months old, Brett is ready for adoption. He was socialized through the shelter's HEAL Program.
Adoptions at scpaLA are on a first come, first served basis. More information is available at the spcaLA website.
