Responding to a human health hazard this week the Door County Humane Society was able to retrieve 40 cats from a condemned home on Washington Island before it was demolished Thursday. The 40 cats are getting health and behavioral assessments this week and Executive Director Carol Boudreau says they are reaching outside the area to help deal with managing the increased numbers at the shelter.
A majority of the cats were feral and undomesticated that were rescued this week. The Door County Humane Society is not funded by government dollars and relies on donations and grants from the Humane Society of the United States to feed, spay, neuter, vaccinate and house stray cats and dogs.
