The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, along with two other local animal shelters, recently took in and helped place 60 cats found living in deplorable conditions in a storage shed in Milford, N.H. Many of the cats removed from this situation required medical care for severe upper respiratory infections, eye ailments and injuries from living in close quarters with so many animals. The cats also needed spay or neuter surgeries before being placed in new homes.

To help cover the costs of the medical care, the American Humane Association (AHA) provided financial assistance through its Second Chance Fund. The fund exists solely to help offset the cost of treating companion animals that have been victims of abuse or neglect. The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire will use these funds to treat the medical ailments of the rescued cats and kittens, making the animals healthy enough for adoption into loving homes.

This is great. The need to help animals that have been abused or neglected is great. Personally, I cannot understand that mentality and it is sad that is even out there. Good work AHA!
