The Nevada Humane Society is trying to find a home for 20 cats and kittens found abandoned Friday in milk crates.
The Humane Society says the felines were left behind a veterinarian's office in the crates stacked on top of each other.
"The veterinarian who found these kitties said the milk crates were stacked one atop the other and left outside behind their clinic. The person went to great lengths to secure them in the crates and dropped them off at a time when no one would have seen it happen," said Denise Stevens, Operations Director for Nevada Humane Society.
The cats are mostly healthy except for a slight cold.
However, the Humane Society needs to find homes for them soon because of limited space.
"It's tough because right now at Nevada Humane Society it's a time of year when the pet population should be decreasing, when we normally see less animals coming into the shelter, and instead it's the opposite, we are seeing less animals than we did this time last year," says Kimberly Chandler.
In addition to the many cats in need of homes, the Humane Society also has almost dogs awaiting adoption.
Through this month they're letting you pick your price to adopt.
Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. The shelter is open Sunday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm. For more information on adopting a pet, please call 775-856-2000, ext. 302.
