Humane officers find 42 more cats at same location as dozens found in car

Humane officers from the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pamona, California were back at the scene on Friday where dozens of cats were found trapped in a car with temperatures soaring over 118 degrees. Less than one week ago, 24 cats had been trapped in the hot car; 42 more cats including 10 sick and malnourished kittens were discovered.

Tragically, 24 of the 42 cats were deceased; their decomposing bodies had been crammed in a storage container at the same location after a strong, putrid odor had been reported. Further investigation found 18 surviving cats hidden in the person’s hotel room – the same individual who left the 24 cats trapped in their car.

“All surviving cats are now safely being treated in our care and the individual is facing charges for animal cruelty. Our veterinary team is assessing and caring for the cats, who will be available to for Foster to Hold & Foster to Adopt,” the non-profit organization posted on their Facebook page.

IVHS welcomes the support of the community at this time to help  provide care for these now almost four dozen rescued cats; especially the young kittens (photographed above) that need extra TLC. Donations can be made at .
