Santa Cruz Animal Shelter Seeks New Homes For 47 Cats Found Living In RV

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY (BCN) -- Nearly four dozen cats and kittens are at the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter and need new homes after they were found recently living in poor conditions in a small recreational vehicle.

The county shelter took in 47 cats in the case, in which the person hoarding them agreed to surrender the felines to the shelter.

As a result of the large influx of new residents, the shelter is offering some incentives to people who adopt cats ages 4 months and older during May.

An adoption fee of $50 for this month includes cats being provided spaying or neutering, a registered microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations, routine treatment for fleas and worms and a free pet wellness exam with a local participating veterinarian.

In addition, all cats adopted in May will go home in a new Sherpa pet carrier.
