More than 50 cats and kittens were rescued from “deplorable” conditions in a Tucson home Friday. Just look at these adorable babies, in need of a loving home.
It was the third hoarding rescue in Pima County in three weeks, according to Tucson.com. Pima County Animal Care Center removed 54 cats from the home. Members of the shelter team worked late into the night to check their weights, vaccinate and deworm them before transferring the animals to the medical team, according to a post on PACC’s Facebook page.
Other shelter partners are making room for the new cats. The Humane Society of Southern Arizona and Saving Animals From Euthanasia, have agreed to take other PACC cats, Pima County spokesman Mark Evans told Tucson.com.
Fifty-seven cats were rescued from a Jan. 19 hoarding situation are ready to leave the shelter. Anyone who takes one home won’t pay a fee, according to PACC’s Facebook page.
PACC is running a special on all other pets, with adoption fees priced at $14 or less. The fee includes the pet’s spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and vet visit. A standard licensing fee of $17 will apply for all dogs.
