SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – Animals impacted by the severe storms across several states will be relocated to Massachusetts.

The MSPCA and Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) in Salem are working together to evacuate 100 cats from the Kentucky Humane Society, located in Louisville. The felines will be flown to Massachusetts on Wednesday.

“Animal shelter officials in Kentucky are eager to relocate the cats,” said Rob Halpin, executive director of communications for the MSPCA. He said this effort will “make room for what will no doubt be a wave of pets suddenly made lost or homeless.”

The charter plane carrying the cats is expected to touch down at the New Bedford Regional Airport Wednesday and the cats will be taken to NEAS in Salem. They will be required to quarantine before being put up for adoption. Halpin said the MSPCA and NEAS expect to hold an adoption special for the cats early next week.
