Cats rescued from Puerto Rico brought to Tucson

Posted: Updated:

A group of young cats that survived Hurricane Maria have been rescued from the streets of San Juan, Puerto Rico and brought to Tucson to find their forever homes.

The nine kittens are now being cared for by the Hermitage Cat Shelter.

The cats, ranging in age from 3 to 6-months-old, were originally taken in by Save a Gato, a non-profit in Puerto Rico.

However, due to the storms, many locals are unable to adopt a new pet.

Save a Gato then called Hermitage Cat Shelter for help.

“In those situations we all ban together,” said Ryan Twigg the shelter’s development coordinator. “We get them a flight and fly them up here until we can find a new home.”

Twigg said the cats will be ready for adoption in 2 to 3 weeks once they are spayed, neutered and vaccinated.
