A small, dark, filthy room choked with garbage and infested with thousands of flies became a prison for 62 cats; some were living in cages for many years. All of the cats were constricted to living in dank, cramped cages with barely room to lay down and without litter boxes. Most of the cages housed multiple adult cats; as many as four to a single cage. Several cats were caged as tiny kittens and have lived their entire lives in this environment. Cat pet carriers housed adult cats; the carriers were so small that the unfortunate prisoners were unable to turn around, stand or escape laying in their own feces and urine. At least five cats were kept in small cat traps, which are intended to catch a cat and deliver it to another location. One cat lived in a trap in this house for eight long years.

All of the cats require medical attention and time to recover from the deplorable conditions in which they were kept. Most of the cats have no idea how to use a litter box.  The large majority of them are cowering towards the back of their cages, though we are encouraging them to come forward, stretch their legs and learn how to be a cat.  All of the cats have been vaccinated and are currently being evaluated by our trainers and veterinarians.

We have launched a fundraising campaign to help fund the costs associated with this large intake of animals.  So far we have raised $1000, which will just scratch the surface on the cost of care.

The link to the fundraising campaign is below: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/5m4P8/ab/93R4L4

Funds raised will be used to treat those cats that need medical attention and help provide socialization through training to all the cats, with a goal of finding forever homes for these animals.
