In desperate need of homes!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
The Humane Society here will be euthanizing if we cannot find homes for cats ASAP.

Capacity is 35, there are at least 85 cats at our facility. And with the numbers, ringworm & coccidia are going to spread fast.

If you have any ideas of rescues in MN who will pull from us, or anyone who would adopt, please let me know!

Oh my gosh Natalie, if I lived closer, I would foster for you

It breaks my heart to think that some of those lovelies might have to be euthenized because of this

I think it's too late. They'll die later this afternoon, I don't even know who or how many.

We have so many, we can't even wait until tomorrow morning.

I'm so sorry, Natalie. It's just heartbreaking. I wish you were closer. I'd foster for you in a hearbeat.

I wish SO badly that I could help! I live in Georgia so I am too far away to foster any of them. I'll call some rescue places in MN. Maybe we can at least rescue some of them? What town are you in?

OH also, do any of them resemble pure breeds? Sometimes pure breed rescue programs will swoop in for those. That could at least save some of them.

I'll do what I can!

White, here are some rescue organizations in MN that I found. Maybe you can call them? I'm being chased out of the office to run an errand so I have to leave.

And as for breed rescues, I'll have to search a bit more...

No purebreds, except for one "supposed" purebred Siamese who looks nothing like one. (She also has ringworm & is nursing 2 babies, not to mention she's cat & dog aggressive) I know most of those rescues & a few won't pull from us...will pass along the others. I spoke with Pet Haven & they're full, full, full. Everyone is.

For now, we are avoiding euthanizing. The vet tech is hauling 8 cats/kittens to the Cities(& 3 dogs) tomorrow. We've got 15 being fixed for farms today & tomorrow. And we're gonna do a 2 - for - 1 deal on kitty adoptions through Oct. So, for now, no one will be euthanized. I still have to make a list for next week, who I think we should euthanize if we need space.

Oh goodness, that is so heartbreaking! I am so sorry, it must be so incredibly painful to be responsible for such a list....I can't even imagine. I'm sending e-hugs your way. I'm so glad you were able to put off the euthanization a little longer, though!

I called Ark and they said they were full (like you said, most are) but she kindly gave me a few more names to try.

I'm going to look for some foster groups that may be able to help. And if she doesn't look like a pure Siamese then thats ok! The Meezer rescue group may be able to help.

EDIT: Here is the meezer rescue group that may be able to help your one baby. Especially if you explain how dire her needs are with her aggression & two kittens.

Sorry your having to go threw that. I tried working with a kill shelter and I just couldnt do it. I couldnt choose who was going to live and who was going to die. I hope you get some kitties adopted!

I'm so sorry. Bless your heart, I just couldn't do the work. I couldn't go through that kind of heartbreak everytime.
