Cats Seized from Hoarding Situation Still Up for Adoption

Of 48 cats recently seized from a hoarding situation in Alpena County, 23 still are in need of a home.
The Alpena County Sheriff's Office took possession of the cats referred to as the Mother Hubbard Crew earlier this month and need to find them homes. Twenty-five were adopted last Friday and Saturday. Others will be available this Saturday (11-25) from noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Alpena County Fairgrounds animal control building.
Animal Control Officer Michelle Reid says an individual has stepped up, offering to cover costs of spay/neuter and rabies fees for the first ten cats adopted Saturday.
All potential adopters fill out an application, and if approved, sign a contract to receive a certificate redeemable for $50.00 worth of spay/neuter /rabies vaccination at local veterinary clinics. All of the cats have been treated for fleas.
It’s recommended additional testing be performed at an additional cost.
The cats come from a home where the owners are being evicted.
