An unexpected and drastic increase of felines at the Grant County Animal Shelter may lead to the euthanization of some kittens if adoptions do not increase.
The shelter normally has around 40 cats and kittens up for adoption at a time, said Brent Caldwell, interim director.
That number has jumped to more than 150 recently, forcing the shelter to scramble to find them homes as soon as possible.
“One truck brought 20 cats in,” Caldwell said. “We haven’t figured out why we’re getting so many so quick.”
