Humane officers from the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pamona, California are currently on the scene rescuing at least 25 cats trapped in a car with temperatures recorded in the vehicle over 118 degrees.
According to the non-profit animal welfare organization, there was no owner in sight, no water and none of the windows had been cracked even for the slightest breeze to help alleviate the heat. Cats and kittens were heard meowing in distress. Officers were able to break into the vehicle and are now removing the cats.
All of the cats are being transported to the shelter’s veterinary hospital where their physical condition will be assessed, re-hydrated and cared for until they recover.
