Close to 50 cats could be brought back to the Door County Humane Society in Sturgeon Bay by the end of the week after a Washington Island home was condemned and declared a public health hazard. Door County officials asked the humane society to step in to help remove the cats last week before the home is demolished on Thursday. Executive Director Carol Boudreau says the largely feral and undomesticated cat population will be examined this week to see if any can be adopted locally or sent to other no-kill facilities in the region.
Even if the Door County Humane Society is able to secure grants from the Humane Society of the United States, Boudreau says the organization will struggle to care for the cats, which includes feeding, spaying and neutering, vaccinating, and housing.
