The Honolulu-based no-kill shelter Animal CARE Foundation is looking for people to care for 35 cats who were left homeless recently when their owner was evicted from a housing unit.

The foundation says it doesn’t have enough space for the felines and seeks foster homes for the cats, many of whom are in poor condition or malnourished. Foster owners would be able to possibly adopt cats at a later time.

The foundation also says it needs supplies for the nearly three-dozen cats, all of whom are lice-infested and are expected to need 30 days of proper medical attention, particularly one with a broken leg.
 
According to Animal CARE Foundation chief veterinarian Sabina De Giacomo, the cats’ previous owner tried to care for them but eventually became overwhelmed and was evicted about 10 days ago because of unsanitary conditions in her rental unit.

De Giacomo said the cats had been inadequately fed by their previous owner and some are now on liquid diets. Some need better nutrition and some are fighting parasites, she said.

For more information on the shelter or how to provide a foster home for one of the cats or kittens, call (808) 396-3333 or visit www.acfanimals.org.

My aunt has 42 cats and cares for a 100% disabled person. She has been told she has to get rid of her cats down to 4, and I believe she is going crazy about it. Her house is the cleanest house I have ever seen. She is having a few pee problems but she has the money from the disabled person and can afford this right now. However she has reached the point where the cats are more important than the person she is taking care of
!!! I do not know what to do for them.

I think it's great to have a no kill shelter. It makes me very sad to know that every year, thousands of animals are euthanized some without a chance to be adopted. One of my dreams in the near future is to create a no kill animal shelter in my community. Animals deserve to live.
