MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) plans to house dozens of cats after recently ditching more than 50 from a single household.
WHS said it has already received 55 cats and is expecting 25 more from the same household in the coming days – potentially 80 animals in total.
Many of the cats are severely undersocialized and need medical attention because of a variety of ailments, WHS said in a Facebook post.
Although some of the cats have already been put up for adoption, many of them will need further care before they are ready to move into their homes.
Ways to help
- Foster: WHS is in the middle of the cat season – more than 400 cats have joined WHS in the last two weeks alone. The extra space that foster families provide allows WHS to help out in big cases like this: wihumane.org/foster.
- Donate: If you can help with a donation of any amount for the food, medical care and care of the animals, you can donate online via the donation button: bit.ly/55CatsDonate.
- Adopt: If you are considering a new family member, let that be the sign, says WHS.

Message from WHS regarding hoarding animals:
If you believe someone is struggling with animal hoarding, it is important to seek help. It’s a serious problem that can get out of hand quickly and affects not only the animals but the owners, their families, and the community as well. Call your local animal welfare organization, health department, mental health agency, or law enforcement agency for supportive resources.
