ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Humane Society said they need your help because they are overwhelmed with cats being trapped and brought into their facility.

Albany Humane Society leaders said on Friday that they have had 118 cats brought into their facility in the last 3 days, while they are only set up to house 50.

They said that Albany Police Animal Control Unit is trapping cats, and bringing them to the Humane Society.  

The Humane Society executive director said these cats are not feral, they are someone's pet. Now they have to put through their trap and release program and need donations to pay for it.

"They are not feral," said Albany Humane Society Executive Director Andy Sartiano. "We are in desperate need. Need desperate help. We have started a T and R program that we could desperately use some donations to help these animals back out where they need to be."

The Albany Humane Society is asking people to adopt a cat, or foster one. But what they need most is donations to pay to spay or neuter these cats, and ear notch them so they can be released.

A spokesperson for the Albany Police said animal control and the Humane Society will meet next week to discuss the situation.
