These rescue kittens are two of many up for adoption in St. John's.

Two five-week-old kittens are up for adoption after being rescued Monday.

The furry, black kittens — named Robin and Hoodie — were found beneath a van that was about to be crushed and recycled, according to a news release from the City of St. John's. They were reportedly underweight and dehydrated, but have recovered and are still improving. 

Coun. Sheilagh O'Leary, chairwoman of the animal care and control committee for the city, said along with Robin and Hoodie, there are many cats up for adoption at the Humane Services shelter. 

"If you've ever thought of adopting a cat or kitten, there's never been a better time to do it," she said in the news release.

The shelter is at 81 Higgins Line.

    Thanks so very much Sheilagh for your very caring love about thees two little treasure kittens. Who in their right mind would do such an awful hing to have these little treasures destroyed. Obviously, COMMON SENSE is not in their vocabulary. They need to take a refresher course at school/University on how to care, and love GOD's little treasures. How cruel can some people be. Obviously they were never taught right from wrong while in the presence of the parents. Spare the rod, and spoil the child. Discipline is missing today from the home, and school. Make no wonder we have so much crime in the world today. Something has to be said about people from the old school of though. Thank you to the workers at the city dump who found them, and saved their lives.

    Poor helpless little darlings. What a dreadful death they narrowly escaped. Thank you to whoever rescued them. I hope that they are kept together. I am a senior and live in an adult building where pets are not permitted. They should be called Miracle and Precious. I wouldn't want Hoodie and Robin because it's a constant reminder of what was going to happen to them.
