Want to adopt cute kittens found near death in a Pinellas freezer? Get in line

Pinellas animal welfare officials have been inundated with requests from people who want to adopt the kittens found in a freezer earlier this week.

The organization has been getting nonstop calls, emails and messages from people who want to take care of the three orange-and-white male kittens, said Nora Hawkins, a spokeswoman for SPCA Tampa Bay.

The kittens, about 6 weeks old, were discovered Sunday evening in a freezer at the Vagabond Mobile Home Park. A fourth kitten, a female, died.

The man responsible for them, Rodney Blanchard, 49, has been charged with animal cruelty.
