GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (KMSP) - Fifty-three kittens flew in from Alabama Saturday night hoping to find their forever homes in Minnesota.
The Animal Humane Society got a call for help from a shelter in Alabama housing 300 cats in a warehouse. Their shelter collapsed during Hurricane Michael, so the kittens were in need of a safe place to call home.
Another rescue group, Wings of Rescue, flew the kittens to Minnesota free of charge.
"You know when you have people like the Animal Humane Society that the pets are going to be really well taken care of,” said Ric Browde, president of Wings of Rescue. “Something that they've never had in their lives, so you just feel really great.”
The kittens will be processed quickly. They will be given shots, veterinary and behavioral exams and will be spayed and neutered before given up for adoption.
Keep an eye on the Animal Humane Society website if you are interested in adopting one.
