Animal Charity takes in 28 cats found in storage facility

The cats were found locked in a storage facility with no light or ventilation

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN ) - Animal Charity of Ohio is reaching out for help after taking in 28 cats from a reported hoarding case.

The cats were found locked in a storage facility with no light or ventilation, according to the animal rescue agency. Some of the cats that were found are pregnant and due to give birth soon.

All the cats still have to be tested for disease, which Board President Mary Louk said will take a big hit from their donation-funded budget.

Police are still trying to figure out who owned the cats. No one has been charged yet.

"There was empty water bottles laying around. There was empty food bowls, some food, probably not enough for 28 cats, especially because we've established that several of the cats are pregnant, so there might have been some level of care there, but not adequate care," Louk said.

To help defray costs, the shelter is requesting wet and dry cat food, newspaper, cat litter, litter boxes and towels. Items can be dropped off at located at 525 W. Main St. in Canfield and 4140 Market St. in Boardman.
