Cedar Rapids Animal Shelter is Helping Displaced Cats Find Homes After Devastating Flood
108 displaced cats were put up for adoption on Saturday at the shelter in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on the Kirkwood Community College campus. Of those 108 cats, 60 found new homes.
The recent flood waters in the region have not only caused havoc for human residents, but for feline and canine ones as well. Since the start of the flooding, over 500 animals have made their way to the shelter.
KCRG TV-9 interviewed adopters Karen Bachman and her husband:
“Our animals have all been rescue animals of some sort through the shelters and things, so this was just another opportunity,” said Bachman.
The cat pictured here was not up for adoption, due to still being under vet watch, but is expected to be available to a caring family soon. An opinionated little guy, he’s been nicknamed after a rock-n-roller with a similar vocal style: Ted Nugent.
