MEDFORD, Ore. – A local animal shelter dedicated to keeping stray cats off the streets recently announced that without some last-minute help, it will have to shut its doors.
The Committed Alliance to Strays (C.A.T.S.) shelter has rescued more than 10,000 kittens and cats in Jackson County. For more than 20 years the nonprofit organization has run completely off of private donations. But now, the shelter managers say they cannot recover from the recent economic crisis without financial help. Shelter volunteers say Jackson County has been surveyed as an area with one of the most stray cats per capita in the country.
