New Smyrna Beach, FL - Volusia County Animal Services are in possession of 16 cats and kittens of various ages that were surrendered by an owner in New Smyrna Beach earlier this week.
The animals were surrendered after VCAS received a tip about potential animal neglect at a home on Lake Ashby Road. An initial inspection determined there were significant issues to cause for concern and an investigation was launched.
The case is under investigation but the focus now is on finding new homes for the cats and kittens. VCAS is asking for the public's help through fee-waived adoption or fostering. If you are interested in adopting a cat or would like to make a donation to the Animal Welfare Fund toward their care, call 386-248-1790.
