Multnomah county has a cat crisis. Chief of Animal Services Mike Oswald says 126 cats were at the shelter in Troutdale today. He says the cats, some of them lost, injured, abused, or abandoned, have been coming in at the rate of 20 a day.
Oswald says if more cats were adopted it would free-up more cage space. And the same would happen if foster homes could be found for some of those cats.
The county is lowering its adoption fees as incentive.
