Westfield Homeless Cat Project Seeks Justice for Abandon Cats

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Organizers at the Westfield Homeless Cat Project are seeking justice in the case of about 30 cats found left for dead in Southwick.

They say they will be sending a letter to local and state politicians asking that police follow up on leads as to who left the cats behind, and who possibly drown other kittens in a nearby river in March.

For now, the cats they have rescued are up for adoption, and many have found new homes.

But some are still battling with health issues, and volunteers are helping them get well for their new lives.

“Like all of the others that haven’t had a vaccine, they come into an environment, and stress alone can cause to have an upper respiratory. That’s why we stress vaccines when they are kittens, it’s most important when they are kittens,” explained Genny Brown, a volunteer vet teach.

If you are interested in adopting one of the remaining cats, adoptions are done at the Cat Project at 1124 East Mountain Road in Westfield on Thursdays and Saturdays.
