More than 60 cats rescued from home in deplorable conditions


DELTONA, Fla. - The Halifax Humane Society took in more than 60 cats after they were rescued from a Deltona home where they were living in deplorable conditions, authorities said.

The owners of the cats were arrested and face multiple charges, including felony animal cruelty. 

The cats will be available for adoption in the upcoming days, barring unforeseen medical issues. 

 "From what we've seen, the cats appear to be healthy, friendly and will make great pets," said community outreach director Tyler Stover.  "We are hopeful that our feline-loving friends in the community will extend a hand to the paws in need by assisting us in finding new forever homes for these cats."
