Dozens of Cats Found Living in Minivan at Minnesota Rest Stop
Harris, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Animal Humane Society is reporting that it removed nearly 50 cats that were found inside a sweltering hot vehicle at a rest stop in east-central Minnesota on Tuesday.
A news release issued by the organization says the Chisago County Sheriff's Office and the State Patrol requested its help after officers responded to a report about the cats at the rest stop along I-35 near Harris Minnesota. The felines had been living in the vehicle with the owner, who released the cats to the Animal Humane Society.
The group says, despite the "extreme heat and unsanitary conditions inside the vehicle," most of the cats appeared to only have minor medical issues. After they are evaluated and receive care to address any health and behavioral issues, the Animal Humane Society plans to put the cats up for adoption.
