More than 19 cats were rescued from an abandoned home in Vermont recently and now animal rescue
workers are looking for loving home for the felines.
According to WCAX
, this is the third seizure in the last few months that has resulted in an increase in cats. Workers are beginning to worry because the number of cats they have under their roof exceeds the number of people willing to adopt them.
These particular cats were found in deplorable conditions and are now being cared for to make sure their health hasn't been compromised.
"I've done a lot of cruelty investigations and animal hoarding cases. This is one of the worst. It's horrible," Sue Skaskiw of Vermont Volunteer Services for Animals told the news source.
All of the felines have been vaccinated and are up-to-date on their shots. They have also been tested and monitored for feline leukemia, which none appear to have. They are hoping to find individuals to adopt these lovable creatures.
Every year in the U.S., more than six to eight million cats and dogs are cared for by rescue shelters, according to the Humane Society.
