We also had our largest owner surrender in 2020. We supported a member of our community who was trying to provide care and shelter to a number of felines at one property and had become overwhelmed as the cats needs continued to grow. Through the hard work and dedication of staff and volunteers HSLM took in 88 cats on one single day.
We safely transported each animal, provided them with immediate vaccinations and prepared a safe and comfortable kennel for them to adjust to their temporary home. Our Animal Health team and volunteers have diligently worked with each cat to help socialize and prepare them for adoption.
Red and Eric were part of the 88 surrendered on October 20, and on November 12, 2020 they were ready to meet their adopters. Adopted together this bonded pair found hope and love this year with their new family. It has been a joy to watch the 88 become available for adoption and find their new homes.
