Over Fifty Cats Rescued from Superior Residence

Officials with Douglas County Humane Society are Working to Clean, Vaccinate, and Find Homes for the Cats

SUPERIOR, Wisc. – The Douglas County Humane Society is seeing an influx of cats calling the shelter home recently.

First discovered by authorities in December, a Superior residence was housing dozens of cats.

Officials say the owner eventually agreed to surrender the animals.

Staff at the Humane Society say they have rescued more than 50 feline friends since the middle of February.

“We’ve had different, very difficult cases, but never this large of an amount of cats since I’ve been working here,” said Sheila Keup, Executive Director of the Douglas County Humane Society.

The shelter is taking the animals in, cleaning them of ear mites, providing vaccinations, and making sure they are spayed or neutered.

“We’re doing it kind of in waves. The first bunch we took out was right about 20, and then I’ve been going back a couple times a week. We might get five or eight or ten at a time,” said Keup.

FOX 21’s Brett Scott will have a full report on this case Wednesday morning during FOX 21 Local News at Eight.

If you would like to donate to the shelter, or are seeking to adopt one of the furry friends, visit The Humane Society of Douglas County on Facebook, call the shelter (715) 398-6784, or stop by their location at 138 Moccasin Mike Road, Superior.
