Good news: Cats find homes!

Great news from Lancaster, California: all of the cats removed from the Cause 4 Cats Sanctuary in Kern County last week have been spoken for!

Our hardworking partners at The HSUS found rescue groups and other organizations to take in all 125 of the cats and find permament placement for them. Some cats have already left for these news destinations, and volunteers will care for the remaining cats at the temporary shelter through the weekend.

Thanks to these groups for taking in or placing the cats in barn homes:

East Bay SPCA, Oakland, CA
San Francisco SPCA
Cits for Cats
Mobile Pet Veterinary Services, Inc., Bakersfield, CA

And thanks to UAN's Emergency Animal Rescue Service volunteers and the other agencies who provided their expertise to help these cats: The HSUS, spcaLA, Kern County Animal Control and PetSmartCharities.

Below are a few more photos from the emergency shelter taken by EARS volunteer Pamela Elliott.
