Sarasota/Manatee Counties, FL – By now you’ve probably read the story and seen the pictures re: the removal of hundreds of animals from a property that presented itself to be a “sanctuary” for animals. The legal system will sort that out so let’s turn our attention to helping the animals that have a long road to recovery (and adoption, once this case is settled).

Cat Depot – which was originally founded in response to another instance of a “rescue” gone bad – has sent out a plea for volunteers and we hope as many of you as possibly can will heed the call and step up. If you're lookin' for love this Valentine's Week ... or you've already found it and you and your significant other want to celebrate the holiday by spreading the love and doing something meaningful, here is the rescue’s plea:

CAT DEPOT SHELTERS 30 CATS CONFISCATED BY ANIMAL SERVICES IN MANATEE COUNTY ANIMAL HOARDING SITUATION

Sarasota, Fla. – (February 7, 2014) – Cat Depot reached out to assist in the care of 30 cats confiscated by Manatee County Animal Services earlier this week from a possible hoarding situation at Napier’s Log Cabin Horse & Animal Sanctuary. Emergency sheltering has been set up at Cat Depot in preparation of their arrival today.

Cat Depot is asking for volunteers to help with daily sheltering care (feeding, cleaning, and socialization). Two daily work shifts are available: 8:00 am to 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Volunteers interested in helping, please email Corey at CoreyR@catdepot.org or call (941) 366-2404.
