SPENCER (AP) — The Roane County Animal Shelter is asking for help after a man gave up more than 100 cats.
Shelter manager Sandy Bush tells media outlets that it’s the largest number of animals surrendered to the facility in its history.
She says the man’s heart was in the right place but he couldn’t take care of that many cats. He asked the shelter for help and workers rounded up the cats on Monday.
Bush says most of the cats are healthy. They’ll be available for adoption in the next day or two.
The shelter is working to find new homes for the cats. It’s asking for donations of money, cat litter, canned cat food, folding metal pet crates and large food bowls.
