PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Humane Society in Portland is hoping to find forever homes for dozens of cats rescued after a truck and trailer crashed in Central Oregon.
More than 40 cats, 10 dogs and a rabbit were found inside the trailer after it ran off the road in Prineville in October, according to OHS.
The animals were first taken to the Humane Society of the Ochocos and their owners were cited for animal neglect by Oregon State Police.
The Humane Society of the Ochocos reached out to OHS for help, explaining that many of the cats need ongoing medical care.
OHS received 11 of the cats last week and 32 more will arrive on Thursday as part of the Second Chance program which transfers nearly 8,000 pets to OHS every year from other shelters.
The Oregon Humane Society is located at 1067 NE Columbia Boulevard and is open from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday.
