RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — It’s been more than a month since more than 100 cats were rescued from a hoarder in Chatham County.
The cats have started their road to recovery thanks to one local shelter, but they now need real help — adoption.
“Five felines are healthy and ready to be matched with forever families,” said Safe Haven For Cats spokesperson Mary Alice Holley.
“After recovering from serious ailments and infections, the cats are incredibly loving and attentive, and they’re going to make a great addition to their new homes.”
Associate Director of Safe Haven for Cats, Sherri Orner said the cats came in with varying conditions.
“Some have ear mites,” she said. “Fleas were the things we saw the most on intake. A lot of them will need dental work. We have a few that have polyps and that sort of thing and several have ringworm which takes 6-8 weeks to cure, so they’ll take a little longer.”
Nine kittens will be available once they’re weaned from their moms, Orner said.
Additionally, some cats are still recovering from a respiratory infection or waiting for dental surgeries.
The community is encouraged to donate and meet the cats up for adoption on the SAFE Haven website – safehavenforcats.org.
