Hundreds of Cats Removed from Sanctuary
Officials in the Florida Panhandle say they have removed hundreds of cats crowded in unsanitary conditions at a cat sanctuary.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said Monday they were working with the Madison County Sheriff's Office to remove the cats from the Caboodle Ranch.
Officials say their investigation stemmed from complaints received by people for the Ethical Treament of Animals.
A search warrant was issued Monday.
The santuary's founder was arrested and faces multiple animal cruelty charges.
ASPCA officials say the sanctuary had no adoption program nor made any effort to manage its population of cats.
The animal group said it would provide the cats with shelter and medical care.
