The Courtland County, N.Y., SPCA is asking for the public’s help to care for 274 cats that were removed from the home of a woman last week.

The cats were removed Sept. 1 from the Cortland, N.Y., home and a nearby building belonging to a woman named Eugina Cute. Police say Cute may have been operating a clinic funded by a non-profit group that helps shelters called “A Purrfect World.” As of Sept. 5, no charges have been filed against Cute.

The cats are now being held in the former Cortlandville Fire Hall. Veterinarians are expected to examine cats today. The cats will get rabies shots and will be tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS.

The SPCA needs volunteers to clean cages, sweep and help veterinarians care for the animals, Director Kathy Gilleran said Tuesday. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
