47 Cats and Kittens Rescued From Hoarding Situation In Santa Cruz Are Looking For Forever Homes

Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter is an open door shelter that never turns away a pet in need. Even if that means taking in 47 cats and kittens at the start of kitten season.

The shelter recently rescued 47 cats and kittens from a hoarding situation. They received a tip that roughly 50 cats were living in poor conditions in a small RV. The owner surrendered all the felines and the shelter is now looking for loving forever homes.

“These cats did not get the resources they needed in their previous home. We are looking for patient, caring adopters to give these kitties a great second chance at life. Adopters will need to be patient in socialization as these cats did not get a lot of that in their previous home,” wrote the shelter.
