"Community members sprung into action and removed the 6 kittens from the drain," police said in a Facebook post.
The kittens were brought back to the police station, where officers and support workers used syringes and formula from a local veterinary office to feed them.
The department contacted local animal rehabilitation expert Sherry Deyo-Pugh, who agreed to foster the kittens.
"We are happy to report the kittens are in Sherry's care now, and are flourishing! Sherry even found every kitten a forever home," the post said.
