Nearly 60 cats living in overcrowded conditions in a Newberg apartment got a new start in life today after being rescued by the Oregon Humane Society.

The 13 kittens and 46 adult cats were surrendered by their owner and transported to OHS, where they will be examined by a medical team and receive any needed care. No charges have been filed against the owner of the pets, who voluntarily relinquished the cats to OHS after being overwhelmed with their care and feeding needs.

“Life just got immeasurably better for these rescued animals,” said OHS Executive Director Sharon Harmon. “We are thankful the owner surrendered them to us.”

The rescued cats are not yet available for adoption. Harmon urged cat lovers not to wait until the rescued cats are available, but to adopt now. “We have more than 70 cats at our shelter now and more arriving daily. We’ll need all the room we can get for the new rescued cats.”

To encourage adoptions, OHS is reducing the adoption fees for all adult cats by 50%

The Oregon Humane Society is the Northwest’s oldest and largest humane society. OHS receives no tax dollars to support its adoption, education, and animal cruelty investigation programs. Visit for more information.
