GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (FOX 9) - More than 100 cats are now in the hands of the Animal Humane Society after they were living in unsanitary conditions in rural Sauk Centre, Minnesota.
According to AHS, the cats were living in a mobile home and portable buildings on the property. The property owners and caregivers worked with AHS to turn over the animals after breeding had gotten out of control.
Tuesday, the AHS Critical Response Team intervened and rescued 115 cats, a rabbit and a chinchilla. Many of the cats were unsterilized and show signs of living in a dirty, overcrowded environment.
Staff gave each cat a medical exam. Some are still in recovery preparing for adoption, however, others are already available. The cats will be dispersed among the Golden Valley, Coon Rapids, Woodbury and St. Paul AHS locations.
