article image39 cats stuffed into 5 small crates, abandoned at NJ shelter

Newark - Authorities are searching for a woman who dropped off five small cat crates stuffed with 39 cats at an Essex county animal shelter in the middle of the night on the evening of July 7.
The cats were victims of neglect and many are sick. The Associated Humane Societies of Newark are offering a $1,000 reward to find the woman who abandoned the 39 cats and kittens after closing hours at the Evergreen Avenue shelter in Newark on Monday, the Examiner reports.
An Associated Humane Societies (AHS) driver found the woman at the shelter dropping the cats off. He asked for her name and asked her to fill out the proper paperwork but she refused. However, in the meantime, the driver was able to take several photographs of the woman.
"It was a horrendous scene with many of the cats/kittens in various stages of neglect," the AHS noted in a press release. All of the cats have been examined by veterinary staff, inoculated, and are receiving treatment which will continue until they are ready to be adopted, Examiner reports. Several of the cats were suffering from ear, eye, and respiratory infections.
Sadly, while none of the kitties are strays, none of them have had proper care, according to Yahoo! Shine.
In order to provide proper care for the cats, the Newark facility is requesting donations of canned and dry cat food.
