MINDEN, La. (KSLA) - The Humane Society of Louisiana (HSL) is asking for the public’s help after rescuing 17 cats from a home in Minden.

Organizers say they’re in need of donations for vet bills, transportation, and the cats’ ongoing care.

Update from the Humane Society of Louisiana: the 80 rescued cats are doing well, thanks to your support! You may have...

The 17 cats came from an overwhelmed rescuer’s house in Webster Parish. HSL says the woman became known as a cat lover, so strays and litters of kittens were frequently abandoned at her doorstep. The woman says with a very limited income in an area with no low-cost options for spaying/neutering, she did her best to care for the cats by keeping the males and female separated in different pens.

HSL says there are no publicly funded shelters or rescue groups in Webster Parish.

The Humane Society also rescued another 63 cats from a similar situation in Avoyelles Parish. The animals were reportedly living in the small house of an impoverished woman there. Similarly, this happened in a parish with no shelter or rescue group, and animals were routinely dropped off at the woman’s home.

Anyone interested in adopting one of the cats should email info@humanela.org. Those interested in making a donation can do so online here.
