Breaking news from the ASPCA announced that nearly 700 cats were rescued at Caboodle Ranch, located in Madison County, Florida. Two dogs were also rescued. In their biggest cat rescue, the ASPCA responded after many complaints were recorded regarding the treatment of cats at the non-profit sanctuary. According to the ASPCA, Tim Rickey, the ASPCA’s Field Investigations and Response team director, “This is a tragic situation. Caboodle Ranch was clearly overwhelmed with hundreds of cats in dire need of medical treatment. The sanctuary had no adoption or spay/neuter programs in place to manage its current population.”
Currently, the ASPCA and responder teams from all over the United States, including far reaching locations like California, have stepped in to help remove the cats, where they will be transported to temporary shelters for veterinary care.
