MSPCA-Cape Cod Accepts Cats from Storm-Ravaged Caribbean

CENTERVILLE – The MSPCA-Cape Cod will be accepting a number of cats from the storm-ravaged Caribbean and say the animals should be up for adoption by the weekend.

34 cats were flown to Nashua earlier this week from St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The MSPCA accepted a request from the overflowing St. John Animal Care Center to take the cats to make room for more animals in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

The cats were already living in the shelter before the storm hit. Most of the animals, except for some of the youngest kittens, have been vaccinated and have been spayed or neutered.

Shelter officials say they expect “huge demand” among adopters for the cats.
