The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA rescued 54 cats from a home in Pasadena today.
Animal control was dispatched to the house after a concerned neighbor called into the organization’s tip line. Officers had made repeated attempts to gain access to the house and were finally granted access on January 23. The owner surrendered the cats to the Pasadena Humane Society on her own volition.
The cats have been taken back to the Pasadena Humane Society where they will undergo thorough medical and behavioral evaluations before being made available for adoption.
“I can’t imagine the horrors these 54 cats have seen,” said Julie Bank, President & CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “Thankfully the cats are now back at the shelter, where they are being cared for by staff. We anticipate many of them will need further medical treatment based on their living conditions.”
The Pasadena Humane Society has set up an online donation page for community members looking to help. In-kind donations such as cat food, towels, and cat litter are also needed. Donations towards their care can be made at pasadenahumane.org/miracle.
We will be looking for new homes for the cats in the near future. Continue to check our website and follow the shelter’s social media pages @pasadenahumane for adoption updates.
