FRAZER TWP -- Humane agents who rescued nearly 600 cats from a animal sanctuary in Frazer Twp. Friday need help from the public.
They are asking for supplies to help care for the cats until homes can be found for them. They need rabbit carriers, medium-sized dog crates and newspapers. Cat crates are not needed, because they are too small for cats to live in comfortably.
People wishing donate can call 814-226-9192.
So far, more than 350 cats rescued from the Tiger Ranch Friday have been moved to the Humane Society in Clarion County.
A Clarification: Channel Four Action News reported at Noon Friday that guns were being used to euthanize some of the cats at the Tiger Ranch. The source for that information was an ASPCA veterinarian, who mistakenly believed that was happening after hearing gunshots at the ranch. A PSPCA spokeswoman said none of the cats was euthanized. She said the gunshots that were heard Friday were coming from a shooting range which is near Tiger Ranch.
