Town of Vernon, WI -- More than 50 cats were rescued from a hoarding situation in the Town of Vernon in Waukesha County on Monday. 

The cats were brought to the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County where several are dealing with upper respiratory infections. 

Officials believe this particular hoarding case started with a single mother cat and her first litter of kittens who were never spayed or neutered. 

If you would like to help, HAWS officials said they're accepting cat supply donations as well as monetary donations to assist with general care, medical care and spaying/neutering of the cats as they are prepared for adoption.
