Cats Rescued from Neglect Could be in New Homes for the Holidays
One hundred cats rescued from different neglect situations will leave a Humane Society International/Canada emergency shelter before the holidays following 12 months of care. HSI/Canada has been assisting with the care of these animals seized by the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation du Québec.
Ewa Demianowicz, campaign manager for HSI/Canada, stated:
“We’re thrilled that the Quebec government won custody of these cats in court and that we can proceed with their adoption. These animals endured deplorable conditions and deserve a happy ending.
“Now, after a full year at our emergency shelter, these animals can finally be adopted. We are working with the Toronto Cat Rescue to ensure that all of them are in loving, forever homes in time for the holidays.
“HSI/Canada is totally committed to the well-being of these animals and is closely following the judicial process concerning the cats’ former owners.”
The cats being transported to Toronto are expected to arrive between 2pm and 4pm ET on Saturday, Dec. 13.
