Three cats survived 22 days inside of an Edmonton Humane Society shelter vehicle after they were forgotten during the transport of pets. According to the Facebook page of the organization, the cats were dehydrated, hungry and suffered urine burns to their paws, but miraculously survived with no major illnesses or injuries.
The incident reportedly occurred on March 27 when pets had been transported to another shelter and somehow were overlooked. It wasn’t until April 18 that the cats were discovered as staff had been preparing the vehicle for another animal transfer. The EHS stated they had been carefully monitoring the cats to ensure their health before they were transferred to another agency for placement. The cats have since been adopted.
In response to the situation and social media outrage, the Edmonton Humane Society posted a news release on Monday assuring the public that new procedures and processes have been instituted to make sure this never happens again:
