    News staff

    Cat cages at the Anderson Humane Society are filled with two and sometimes as many as four cats. Currently, there are 33 cats housed at the humane society, about 40 cats in foster homes and 28 at animal control. The agency was overrun with cats two weeks ago when 30 cats were brought in one day. Being a small facility, the humane society can’t take on the influx of cats alone.
