Ninety cats lived in the house, and 30 were euthanized because they were in such bad condition.
Safe Haven for Cats got eight. The shelter says it will take eight to 12 weeks and thousands of dollars in medical care to get them healthy so they can be adopted.
However, just in time for Safe Haven's Black Friday adoption event, two of the lucky eight are ready now. They join the nearly 100 cats at the shelter ready for a happy home.
All of them needed help.
"Varying degrees of serious upper respiratory infections, heart murmurs, ingrown toenails, filthy, needing baths, ear mites, intestinal parasites," said Pam Miller, with Safe Haven for Cats.
Friday kicks off Safe Haven's three-day Black Friday adoption event.
Adoption fees, which usually start at $95 dollars, will only be $5 Friday through Sunday.
Every year, 300,000 animals are euthanized in North Carolina. That's why the medical and daily work at no kill shelters like Safe Haven, and adoption events, are life savers for these animals.
