200 Cats Rescued by HSUS

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is assisting the City of Killeen in removing nearly 200 cats and kittens and several dogs from a large-scale alleged neglect situation in Killeen, Texas. The animals are being examined by Dr. Melinda Merck, a veterinary forensic consultant from Austin and Dr. Cate McManus from Irving Animal Services, and are receiving any necessary immediate medical treatment. RedRover responders are assisting in the caretaking of the animals at the temporary shelter, and Emancipet is donating veterinarian and veterinary technician services at the temporary shelter.
