More than 30 cats were dropped off at the Lamar County Humane Association shelter from an apparent hoarding situation in Lamar County on Thursday morning.
“A man went to an elderly family members house and found 30 plus cats in a hoarding situation,” said Stephanie Corley, Paris Shelter rescue coordinator, “while there was a horde of animals, they seemed to have been dumped as they live on the outskirts of town, and the situation, unfortunately, got very out of hand.”
The cats were dropped off around 10:30 a.m. and due to such a quick influx of felines, all cats in the shelter are now in danger due to space.
“There are mostly black, tabby, and orange tabby kitties ranging in ages from about 3 months to about a year,” said Corley, “we have several other cats in the cat room ranging from 8 weeks to 2-3 years in a variety of coat colors and lengths. All beautiful and highly adoptable.”
Those wishing to help the shelter and save a cats/kittens life can stop by the shelter, 310 Clement Road in Paris, or call 903-784-6774
“It is simple to adopt. You come in and speak to an adoption representative before getting to know and pick out a feline,” explained Corley. “some quick paperwork is then filled out and you’re on the way home with your new kittie(s).”
There is an adoption fee of just $55 which gets your kitty spayed/neutered, as well as, a rabies vaccination.
