WI Humane Society receives 75 cats in 1 week, donations 'deeply appreciated'

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The number of animals being cared for by the Wisconsin Humane Society just rose significantly -- the organization says they recently received more than 70 cats within just one week.

According to the shelter's Facebook post, a group of 55 were surrendered privately, and another group of 20 strays were brought in from law enforcement from an abandoned building. 

They say most of the cats are severely under-socialized and have required medical attention for a variety of ailments.

Many have never had human contact and are likely unable to be household companions, but the humane society says these animals can thrive in environments like barns, stables, warehouses, breweries, etc. as working cats.

It is suggested that in this scenario at least two be placed together, since they often develop strong bonds with each other.

The humane society says many will need further support before they become available for adoption, and donations of any size would be "deeply appreciated" to go toward food, medical care and supplies.
