Before we rescued them, the six cats, along with 35 Beagles, all from a shuttered down North Carolina laboratory last month, were subject to more than the cruel procedures involved with animal testing. Their handlers starved them, literally threw them into their cages, on the floors and against walls and verbally showed their hatred.
Today, the six cats are safe, comfortable and cared for at the Associated Humane Societies Forked River and Tinton Falls Animal Shelters. Now, all they need are real homes.
These six cats were all rescued from the closed down North Carolina laboratory. Four cats, (top and bottom row) are available for adoption at the Forked River Animal Shelter. The two center cats are available at Tinton Falls.
“After we made public our successful efforts to rescue the Beagles and cats from the testing facility, there has been a large outpouring of support for the Beagles. We have even had a number that have already been adopted,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, AHS/Popcorn Park. “But somehow the cats we rescued have not been noticed.”
“Despite the horrid abuse they encountered, these are six of the sweetest, most sociable cats I’ve seen. It’s as if they are completely grateful for their rescue,” Ms. Trezza said.
All six of the young adult cats are completely healthy and in need of good homes. They are all available for adoption. All cats will be spayed/neutered and microchipped, and receive their FVCRP vaccination and rabies inoculation, as well as an identification tag, cat carrier and collar. To adopt one of the six loving cats and give them the loving life they deserve, please contact us.
