ROANOKE, Va. – Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital staff came to a kitten’s rescue on Monday morning.

We’re told a worker heard a concerning sound coming from the dumpster and called Carilion Police to investigate.

When the officer got to the area and checked the dumpster, he found a paper Kroger bag with a six-week-old kitten inside, according to Angels of Assisi.

Shelter staff said the kitten is named Toby.

Now that Toby has received vet care, he’s living in a loving foster home until he’s old enough to go up for adoption.
