Animal rescuer: kitten burned, killed by fireworks in Covington

NORTHERN KENTUCKY (FOX19) - A local animal rescuer wants pet owners to watch their animals because she believes someone intentionally killed a kitten with fireworks in Covington.

Laura Bamberger, who runs the non-profit The TriState Noah Project, said that the person used fireworks to blow up humane shelters that were built for community cats and then burned and killed a kitten.

Bamberger spends four hours each day feeding and saving animals that are on the streets. She said that's how she found the dead kitten.

Bamberger is now raising money to open an animal sanctuary in Northern Kentucky. She believes it could prevent cruelty and abuse.

On top of monetary donations through a GoFundMe page, Bamberger said she is also looking for temporary land donations. While she said they are looking at certain properties for the long term, they are open to borrowing property in the short term that would be tax deductible.
