A Valley News Publication

Thank you to the Sullivan County Humane Society for allowing us to share a clip from a longer video (which you can watch here) showing the progress of the 12 cats who survived alleged abuse in Claremont. Police said they found a single cat carrier, which the humane society said was suitable for one or two cats, stuffed with 14 cats outside in the cold last month. The cats were covered in blood, urine and feces, according to SCHS, and two of them did not survive.

However, three weeks on, the survivors are doing great! SCHS says the cats still need medical and dental care, but will be available for adoption “once they have been released by the courts and have a clean bill of health.”

The Sullivan County Humane Society exceeded its fundraising goal for the cats on GoFundMe. Follow SCHS on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They are also a regular participant in the Valley News’ weekly adoptable pets series.
