More than 50 of the cats recently seized from Sacred Vision Animal Sanctuary were available for adoption yesterday.
Nearly two weeks ago, 237 cats were taken from Elizabeth Owen and the Sacred Vision Animal Sanctuary after an undercover PETA investigation claimed the animals were being mistreated. After medical examinations, 107 were euthanized, 30 personal pets were returned to Owen, and the rest were kept at a temporary facility and have been in the care of the county.
More than 40 people came out for the adopt-a-thon yesterday. The $25 adoption fee included spaying/neutering, microchip, Feline RCP vaccine, 1-year rabies vaccine, feline leukemia testing, deworming, flea treatment and 30 days of free pet health insurance.
The cats not healthy enough for adoption will continue to be held and treated by the county. “We are going to adopt them eventually, but we want to make sure all of the healthy cats get adopted first,” says Horry County Operation Manager Kelly Bonome. “Nothing is going to happen to them, and they’re still getting a lot of good care are treatment, but they’re going to need special homes.”
Owen was charged with animal neglect; a date for her trial has not been scheduled.
