Dozens of cats are being taken in by the non-profit Community Animal Resource & Education Society in Burien and the group is looking for homes for all of them.

CARES says all the cats were living with one person in Burien. They are waiving the $60 adoption fee for the cats and they are also looking for foster humans.

CARES, which provides animal control services for the City of Burien, says they initiated the rescue because the overwhelming number of cats has become an issue.

With the owner's agreement, CARES will remove the cats eight at a time and take them to the nonprofit Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project for spaying, neutering, checkup and rabies vaccination. The first appointments have been set for Oct. 3 and Oct. 6, and the cats will need homes immediately afterward.

Volunteers say the cats they have come into contact with so far have been very friendly and loving despite their circumstances. The cats spend time outside as well as indoors.

Hard-sided plastic cat carriers are also needed to move the cats to and from the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project since the project does not allow the use of cardboard carriers.

To adopt a cat or for more information, call 206-81-CARES or email buriencares@gmail.com
