500 cats rescued from High Springs cat sanctuary


More than 500 cats have been rescued from a cat sanctuary in High Springs… National organizations were called in to help with this operation and WUFT-FM’s Corey Bachman spoke with the Division Director for Alachua County Animal Services, David Flagler, who says the bulk of these cats were living in deplorable conditions. Flagler notes the Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Rescue Team stepped in to assist in the removal of these cats from the Haven Acres Cat Sanctuary in High Springs along with other organizations in hopes of providing the more than 500 cats with forever homes.
