BROOKINGS, Ore. — After an unexpected animal rescue, the South Coast Humane Society of Brookings is hoping to find good homes for a whole host of friendly felines.

The Humane Society brought in the cats after a local man approached them and said that he'd become 'very overhelmed' with the number of cats he had taken in, according to Jenifer Alcorn, acting-Supervisor at South Coast Humane Society.

"We were able to go in and take 30 cats and bring them up to an animal-loving community member's barn to quarantine them and health-check them," said Alcorn.

Alcorn said that, while the cats are used to being outdoors, they are all surprisingly social. They range in age from young kittens to 4-year-old cats—and they vary wildly in coloration and appearance.

"We will be seeking community members who would like to adopt these cats," said Alcorn. "Most of them would do best in an outdoor environment...they're all super friendly and really sweet. They just want to be petted and loved like most cats."

All of the cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and given a health checkup by a vet before they go up for adoption, according to Alcorn.
