Shelter Cats Saved in Bridgeport

On Monday, the Bridgeport animal shelter put out a plea to the public to help save the lives of several cats that were in danger of being put down if they did not get homes.

Residents came through and adopted 75 cats in less than 24 hours. 

News 12 reported on Monday that the shelter had about twice as many as the establishment's capacity.

Shelter staff warned that they might have to start euthanizing some of the cats if it could not find homes for them soon.

This afternoon, the animal shelter tells NBC Connecticut that all the cats have been adopted.

Animal control officials said all adoption fees for cats and kittens would be covered by the charitable organization T.A.I.L.S.

Bridgeport Animal Control is still looking for homes for some dogs. The shelter is located at 236 Evergreen Street in Bridgeport.
