ARL Rescues Over 60 Cats From Shed In Edgartown

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The American Rescue League Law Enforcement found 65 cats living in a shed in Edgartown.

The conditions were deemed 'detrimental' and 'dangerous,' according to ARL spokesperson Mike DeFina.

"Unsanitary, it was a very warm temperature inside the shed, was in the mid to upper 80s, certainly too warm to be keeping cats in conditions like that," DeFina said.

The number of cats is now closer to 80, as a few of the cats rescued were pregnant. The influx of cats has put a strain on the Animal Rescue League's shelter space veterinarians and staff, who are still assessing the health and medical needs of the felines.

There's no timeline at this point on when the cats will be up for adoption.

"We're more focused on just making sure they're healthy and taken care of," DeFina said.
