On the evening of July 7th, a woman abandoned 42 cats that were stuffed into 5 carriers at the Associated Humane Societies Newark facility. It was a horrendous scene with many of the cats/kittens in various stages of neglect.
Upon intake, every cat/kitten was inoculated, many were brought to the AHS Medical Dept. for the vet to administer whatever was needed.
These are just some of the 42 cats that were left in carriers outside of Associated Humane after hours. Some of the cats are in the Medical dept. being spayed/aborted and other veterinary care is administered to several. None are feral.
No animals were euthanized to keep these cats alive.
Our Res-Q Fund is constantly used for such unexpected emergencies. The AHS is in need of canned/dry cat food, cat treats, kitty litter and lifetime homes for these and many of our other cats. Also needed are contributions for the AHS Res-Q Fund to help in our care and efforts for these felines. For more information, e-mail us or call 973-824-7080.
