RACINE - Racine police brought 19 kittens and cats found abandoned in a one-bedroom apartment to the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus Thursday afternoon, June 27.

WHS is asking for the public's help in caring for these animals, as the shelter is already experiencing a high volume of cats and kittens.

"We want to make more room for these cats, and others who arrive every day. Kitten season is in full swing, and we have about 100 cats and kittens looking for new homes at our shelters this weekend," said Angela Speed wth WHS. "If you're on the fence about adopting a cat or kitten, now is the time."

According to Speed, because they were abandoned, the 19 felines will be serving a seven-day stray hold as required by law, in case there is an owner out there looking for them. They will be seen by a veterinarian and behavior specialists while in WHS's care. Like all cats at WHS, they will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before becoming available for adoption.
