Leander, TX, November, 29, 2017— On Giving Tuesday, Texas Humane Heroes took in 36 cats who were surrendered due to a hoarding situation in Killeen, Texas. Killeen Animal Services contacted TXHH to help intake the animals then transported them to the Leander Adoption Center where they will receive everything needed before becoming available for adoption such as spay and neuter surgeries, microchipping, vaccinations, and for some, medical treatments.
“On the day of global giving, our organization is humbled to give back to those in need,” says Executive Director Kristen Huguley. “Our mission to eliminate pet homelessness is an action we put into place every day. Being able to provide care and the opportunity to find a loving home for these cats on Giving Tuesday makes it more rewarding.”
Over 40 animals were living in unsanitary conditions and it was clear that some of these cats were not receiving medical attention. Upon arrival to the Adoption Center, the unbearable smell made it apparent to their living conditions. The organization transported 6 of the cats who were in the most dire need of medical treatment to Cat Hospital of Austin early this morning.
All the cats will begin looking for their forever families this holiday season as soon as they become adoption ready, some may be available as early as today. All cats are between the ages of one and three and most appear to be siamese mixes. The organization urges people who are considering bringing a new pet into their home, to visit these cats and give them the family they deserve this holiday season.
