Anderson Feline Survivors: A story of hope

This is an update on the cats found on 'the farm' in Anderson County, South Carolina following the arrest of Julianne Westberry.

Westberry was charged with ill treatment of animals and torture. The cats dumped on a property to fend for themselves were the lucky ones.

Anderson County Animal Control trapped several dozen cats, who were taken to Anderson County PAWS, where they were given only a few days before they risked being euthanized.

A wonderful team of volunteers, along with a Mauldin, South Carolina business owner, have worked miracles since these cats were trapped and transferred to the donated
Building on Butler Road.

Many of these cats are new mothers, several are pregnant. Others are sick, injured, emaciated or all of the above.

The cats who aren't pregnant have been put up for adoption. Others will be spayed after their kittens are weaned, and all will need forever homes.

Anderson Feline Survivors needs your help. Both now and in the near future. The group of volunteers who are caring for the cats hasn't had as high a signup as needed. People are needed in three hour intervals to clean, feed and socialize these cats.

If you can offer just a few hours a day, a sign-up sheet can be found here.

The cats also need many more supplies. There are currently more than three dozen cats being cared for, with 50 or more kittens expected. An Amazon wishlist has been created here. Gift cards to Petsmart are also welcomed.

Please feel free to stop by and visit the cats, and see what miracles a group of determined cat lovers can accomplish when they work together.
