With temperatures hitting the ’90s, the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office and Minnesota State Patrol noticed the trapped felines and put in a call to AHS for assistance.
The owner of the car, which was at a rest stop, was also living inside the vehicle, having recently become homeless. The owner, who had previously surrendered 14 cats over to AHS, handed the rest of the cats over to the rescuers.
The felines inside the vehicle ranged from being just one year old to up to twelve years old. AHS examined the cats and found that most of them thankfully suffered from only minor issues despite the severe heat and cramped conditions of the car.
If you’d like to help, you can make a donation to AHS to help care for the cats here. You can also keep an eye on their adoption page to see when these kitties become available.
Unfortunately, the summer and hot weather season seems to bring about a number of cases of pet parents irresponsibly leaving their pets inside cars that are too hot to be safe.
Have you ever reported or rescued any pets left inside a vehicle that’s too hot? Will you help get the word out about these cats who will need to go to forever homes soon? Let us know in the comments section below.
