Orlando, Fla. — Orange County Animal Services is looking to re-home 47 cats and kittens they received from a home in the Conway area of Orlando.
Adopters and foster parents are now needed after the Conway homeowner reportedly sheltered a few neighborhood cats in his home prior to a recent hurricane.
That number, Orange County Animal Services says, quickly grew out of hand.
“This began with an act of concern for these cats, with the resident bringing a few of them inside,” said Diane Summers, manager for Orange County Animal Services.
“This is the exact type of situation that can be mitigated by spay and neuter, which we strongly promote. We hope that anyone seeing this that may be in a similar situation can take heed and seek out assistance now.”
Most of the dozens of cats are in good health with some displaying “varying degrees of upper respiratory infections” which will need treatment.
Anyone interested in adopting the cats are welcome to visit the shelter, with an appointment.
Many of the cats will be made available for virtual adoption in the following days.
Those interested in becoming a foster parent to help the kittens associated with this case are invited to begin the registration process.
