Harlingen Humane Society Board President Pat Truman-White is looking to find homes for cats that are being held at the society’s Panda Cat Sanctuary.
Truman-White estimates that there are currently about 10,000 cats roaming the city. Since 2015, the Harlingen Humane Society’s Panda Cat Sanctuary has taken about 2,000 cats off the streets in Harlingen and hopes to find homes for about 55 more.
“Some of these cats have been here for the past years and now we have the funds to get them adopted out,” Truman-White said. “Our hope is to get all of our sanctuary cats all homes.”
The Panda Cat Sanctuary can only house about 44 cats at a time, Truman-White said. The organization will hold an event on Saturday in an effort to get them all adopted.
All of the cats and kittens have been vetted, spayed, neutered and microchipped, and will be up for adoption for $10 starting Aug. 19.
Truman-White added that the event will continue until all of the cats and kittens have been adopted.
