Rescued Kitties

rescuejan2012aCVAS employee Mary Schultz recently helped a local veterinarian with the rescue of 21 kitties from a terrible hoarding situation in Stevens County.  The owner was moved to a nursing home and her 21 cats needed to be removed from her home and property.

rescuejan1213None of the cats had been spayed or neutered and all were pretty sick.  The cats were very frightened and it was difficult to tell, at the time of rescue, if they were tame or not.

rescuejan2013cBecause the vet in charge of the rescue did not realize how many cats there would be, and did not have room for all 21, CVAS needed to clear out one of our only two isolation rooms so that we could house 17 of the cats.  That was quite a challenge for us because we were, and still are, very overcrowded.

Mary’s little helper

The white kitty with one blue eye and one green eye is extremely friendly!  When Mary is doing the chores in their room he is WITH her every step of the way.  Please contact us if you would be interested in adopting one of these truly “rescued” kitties!

How You Can Help

You can also help us greatly through donations of cash, kitten and cat food, and clumping litter.


We are completely full in our cat kennel and are having to turn people away or put animals on a waiting list before they can enter the shelter. We hate to do this, but we simply do not have the space nor the man power to keep up with the number of incoming animals. We need more volunteers and foster families!
