URGENT HELP NEEDED - 120+ Cats in Lebanon Co.

20375710 1420652424669407 8121192663328291721 n7-26-2017 - PAWS is in desperate need of supplies.  We are in the beginning stages of intervening in a 120+ cat situation in Lebanon county.  A family reached out for help and has granted PAWS permission to access the property and surrender the cats to PAWS. This is a rural location and involves a family member entering a care facility. The feline population has exploded and we really need help.  The property will not be maintained and will be auctioned in the near future. This is well beyond our current means but we will do everything we can to help the cats. We are reaching out to other rescues and individuals for placement assistance. VanandcariersPAWS representatives were onsite yesterday to begin assessing the situation. We have pulled a few cats already that were in immediate medical need.  By initial estimates there are approximately 120+ cats/kittens.  Many of these cats are feral but there are also many that are socialized. We've counted at least 11 litters on the ground. PAWS volunteers have taken over the care and feeding of these cats as of today.  In the coming days we will be able to start estimating how many cats are socialized and can be considered for traditional adoption placement.  We will begin moving cats from the property to safe locations, however; we do not have placement for all the cats at this time. Please consider offering a spare room in your home for a socialized cat or a safe enclosed, ventilated area for a few ferals to stay till we can locate safe barns, country homes, etc for these ferals to live out their lives. All the cats will receive medical care, spay/neuter and vaccinations, as needed. This will take a large amount of effort and a large amount of resources.

20170727 230109Please help us.

To get started we are in desperate need of the following:

Food - dry, canned, Adult and Kitten Crates - any size Humane traps Capstar, Frontline, Advantage, Revolution Litter boxes Pet beds - can be gently used Towels, sheets, blankets - can be gently used Pet bowls Paper towels Garbage bags

UPDATE 7/28/17

We have pulled 62 cats from the property, so far. Happy to say that many of the cats seem friendly. Sadly, a litter of kittens has passed away. Of the kittens we have, many are sick with upper respiratory illness and eye infections. They have received vet care and are being treated. Most of the adults appear healthy. There are some that are being treated for URI, diarrhea and some that have old injuries that are being treated.
Currently all the cats are quarantined for health and behavioral assessment. All the cats have recieved initial vaccinations, if appropriate, and flea/parasite treatment.

There is much more work to be done. Spay/neuter and on-going care, as well as, trapping the remaining estimated 60 cats/kittens.

Thank you to all who have donated so far, we are so appreciative of your generosity and compassion. We could not do this without your support.

Thank you to all who have offered to foster, adopt and volunteer. We will be in contact with each of you. Please be patient as we manage the intake and care of the cats.

20374357 1422552257812757 2158091382413517574 nVery grateful to folks like Fred and Louise who have been to PAWS twice today to donate supplies. Our volunteers loved meeting them.

Shout out to Derry Township Community Cats for taking in 10 of the cats for us. They'll be fostering the cats till we can cycle them into our adoption program.

Support like this from the community is what makes this life-saving rescue possible.

Please consider making a donation to help the cats.

88 CATS RESCUED - LEBANON COUNTY

We've been working hard and have pulled another 26 cats from the property. Bringing us to 88 cats total at this time.

Still have an estimated thirty or more cats to trap. While on-site we can easily count that many. Experience tells us there is always more cats then what we count. Many of the cats are receptive to human interaction so we are hopeful many will be candidates for traditional adoption placement. Meaning they will adjust to norma...l interaction with people and an indoor home life.

Thank you for all the community support PAWS has received. We have received very generous donations of food, bedding, toys, litter boxes, bowls, monetary donations, etc. The support has touched and inspired our volunteers. We are grateful for each and every donation.

We are reaching out to veterinarians to help examine and spay/neuter the cats for us. We want to transition the kitties into homes as soon as possible. Please contact PAWS if you are a veterinarian willing to help with this project. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 717-957-8122 box 3.

Check out the photos of a few of the cats looking relieved and happy to have full bellies, soft beds and lots of love.

Please consider making a donation to help the cats.
