Nearly Sixty Cats Found in Home

Dozens of cats are rescued from a hoarding situation in Jackson County this week.

The Cascades Humane Society tells us a woman living at Pleasant Lake contacted them last week, saying she needed help caring for her cats. When staff arrived to pick them up, they discovered nearly sixty cats in the home.

Despite the fact staff had to wear hazmat suits to remove them, the cats are in good condition.

The shelter believes that because the woman took in a lot of strays, some of the cats may belong to people living in the area. If you think your cat might be one of them, send the Cascades Humane Society a detailed message with picture.

The shelter is asking the community for donations to help pay for all the surgical and medical costs to treat the cats. They could also use kitten food, cat litter, and large dog cages.

Cascades Humane Society is located on Carmen Drive in Jackson. They’re open from noon until six daily.
