The police got a call about a couple of cats that were abandoned in Clement Park, in a cardboard box, on New Year’s Day.

According to the article from News 10 ABC, after an investigation, police came to the conclusion that the cats were abandoned on New Year’s Eve. They arrested Lynneanne Snay. She was charged with Abandonment Of Animals.

Some of the neighbors took the cats and cared for them before the cats were taken to the Saratoga County Animal Shelter, where they are being kept, and will be put up for adoption, soon.

Snay will be returning to Waterford Town Court on January 16.
