Fortunately, in the most recent incident, the cat survived and is now looking for a good home.
However, it is not the first time that a cat was dumped inside a bucket at that location.
On Thursday, police said that the man left a sealed bucket that contained a cat inside right near a garbage can in front of Animal Haven and then fled.
A worker leaving for the night saw the bucket, heard a hiss, and knew exactly what was inside.
An investigation determined that the bucket's lid had a hole in it, and the cat was malnourished.
On Nov. 17, another worker found a similar plastic bucket near the trash outside the shelter's back door. Peeking out of the hole on top was a cat's eye.
They brought the furry creature inside, checked her out, and named her "Sage."
