HAWTHORNE HORSEMEN ASSIST IN CAT RESCUE

Local horsemen waited with anticipation on Thursday afternoon. They were waiting for a horse van coming in from Florida that contained special cargo. It wasn’t a famous stakes horse. It wasn’t a horse at all. It had 80 legs.

Eighty legs?

Those 80 legs belonged to 20 cats that were taken, rescued really, from Haven Acres Cat Rescue in Gainesville, Florida back in June.

Trainer Christine Janks has been actively involved for the last five months in the rescue and adoption of approximately 700 cats that were taken from that facility. The cats were living in deplorable conditions and were virtually feral.

Various humane organizations pooled their resources to spay, neuter, worm, vaccinate, and medicate every cat. Adoption fairs have been held and almost all the cats have been placed.
