More than 100 kittens from Louisiana are available for adoption after their flight landed in New Bedford, Massachusetts Tuesday.
The felines were previously living in shelters, including the St. Charles Parish Animal Shelter in New Orleans and Acadiana Animal Aid in Lafayette and Cara’s House in Sorrento, according to the MSPCA in Boston and Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Massachusetts.
The kittens arrived by way of Good Flights, a Greater Good Charities program, and iheartcats.com. At least 70 of the kittens are bunking down at the Northeast Animal Shelter and the remaining 30 are at MSPCA-Cape Cod.
The kittens will serve out their mandatory 48-hour quarantines and then be ready for adoption.
