70 cats freed

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

VOL­UN­TEERS from Va­len­cia an­i­mal res­cue shel­ter Mode­pran this week dis­cov­ered 70 cats trapped in a 40 square-me­tre base­ment in the re­gional cap­i­tal.

The find came af­ter a neigh­bour com­plained to the town hall about bad smells em­a­nat­ing from the en­clo­sure.

It has not tran­spired whether the owner of the room where the an­i­mals were trapped has been re­ported to the au­thor­i­ties due to the un­healthy con­di­tions in which they were kept.

Fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery, Mode­pran's in­stal­la­tions in Ben­imàmet have be­come crit­i­cally over­crowded and forced the as­so­ci­a­tion to re­quest ur­gent help for adop­tions.

In ad­di­tion, a bank ac­count num­ber has been pub­lished on their Face­book site - Mode­pran Va­len­cia - for do­na­tions to buy medicine and food for the cats.

The shel­ter reg­u­larly re­ceives an­i­mals that have been aban­doned by res­i­dents liv­ing nearby, as euthanasia of cats and dogs is pro­hib­ited in Va­len­cia.
