The Fayette Regional Humane Society (FRHS) recently participated in an animal rescue initiative to save cats from possible euthanasia.
Second Chance Animal Rescue of Georgetown, SC, coordinated the transportation of 52 cats from the Robeson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina, a shelter with a 90 percent cat euthanasia rate.
There were several Humane Societies and Rescues from Ohio that recently went to Cincinnati where they connected with the transport vehicle from North Carolina.
These shelters included FRHS, along with the Best Friend Animal Society, the Cincinnati Animal Care Humane Society, the SPCA Cincinnati, the League for Animal Welfare, and the Ohio Alley Cat Resource.
The Fayette Regional Humane Society adopted 11 of these cats. One of these cats has already been adopted.
“We are so lucky to be able to help cats whose future looked bleak and give them the second chance they deserve. Our adoption rate is so high that we know each of these cats will be adopted into a loving home. We are grateful to everyone involved in this rescue,” said FRHS Director Dr. Lee Schrader.
For information on cats and kittens available for adoption through FRHS, follow the Facebook page, keep an eye on Petfinder, or use the FRHS website. FRHS is located at 153 S. Main St. in the Washington Court House.
