Caboodle cats recovering after rescue
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is helping investigate an animal cruelty case on Caboodle Ranch in Lee, Florida. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Jillian Baach reports.
Seven-hundred cats were rescued from Caboodle Ranch in February. Southeastern Regional Director for the Field Investigation and Response Team for the ASPCA Adam Leath says most of the animals were found with serious diseases.
While these cats are currently being treated and cared for by the ASPCA, there are still many other cruelty cases that have not yet been discovered. Leath urges anyone who witnesses any form of animal cruelty to report it immediately.
