Pasadena Humane rescued more than 38 cats and kittens from a stationary travel trailer in Monrovia Friday. The cats were living in cramped and unsanitary conditions inside a very small space with no air conditioning.
During the operation, Pasadena Humane staff worked to safely remove the cats from the home. The cats were transported back to the shelter, where they received medical exams before being placed into clean kennels with food, water, and fresh bedding.
Some of the cats are suffering from symptoms of upper respiratory but are in overall stable condition. The cats are now under the supervision of a veterinarian and are being provided with needed medical care. Fortunately, most of the cats appear to be friendly.
“I am happy to report that all the cats found living in the trailer are now safely in our care,” said Dia DuVernet, President & CEO of Pasadena Humane. “Pasadena Humane is here to provide food, shelter and care for animals in need, and these cats certainly needed our help.”
The healthy cats will be made available for adoption immediately. The cats will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before going to their new homes.
“We are deep into our busy season right now, and our cat center is very full. We are anticipating even more animals coming in over the 4th of July holiday,” added DuVernet. “With the busy summer upon us, resources are stretched to the limit. We really need our community’s help to find homes for all the cats and help support their care.”
Adoptions are available by appointment and can be made on the shelter’s website. Pasadena Humane has also set up an online donation page to help support care for the cats. Donations can be made at pasadenahumane.org/helpnow.
Shelter officials will continue to post updates on Pasadena Humane social media (@pasadenahumane). To learn more about the cats, visit pasadenahumane.org.
