We received the first 29 cats in just 2 days, then reached a total of 43 cats, all from just one household. Sadly, as sometimes happens, someone with all the best of intentions became overwhelmed, and living conditions deteriorated as the home became overrun with pets. The Humane Society offered to take all of these cats in, but as you can imagine, such a sudden influx of cats taxes our resources. All of the cats need some sort of help, and we expect more to arrive. We would love your donations of canned cat food, dry food, kitty litter and financial contributions for medical care to give these cats a second chance. We’d also love extra volunteer help with our other residents because the staff must devote a lot of time to these newcomers in need. We are open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
UPDATE 1/26/2013: Five more cats have been brought in from this household. That’s 34 so far. More are expected.
UPDATE 1/29/2013: Four more cats have been humanely trapped at the residence bringing the total to 38 rescued. Two more cats have been seen, but are eluding capture for the moment.
A HUGE thank you to all who have already donated to help!! Your help is what makes the PMHSKC a caring, community-supported shelter.
