BOONVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

On Tuesday, Warrick Animal Control rescued 27 cats and kittens, and thanks to generous donations from the community, none of them have to be euthanized.

Since the rescue, officials have been able to find places for 20 of the felines at local shelters, leaving only 7 more who need to find good homes.

Since posting the story on social media, we've had many people share the story and say they want to help. One Facebook friend even said she donated enough money so one cat will be available for free.

Warrick County Animal Control is not a shelter, so by law, they must spay/neuter the cats and give a rabies shots before they can be adopted.

The remaining cats will be available for adoption starting Monday, July 8, for less than $50. Vaccines and vet fees included.

The Animal Control building is located at 599 Roth Road in Boonville, IN.

Call (812) 897-6107 to find out more, or to leave a message saying you're interested.
