“The first three cages of the cats we saw were heartbreaking,” Mr. Huang, a lead rescuer with CAPP, said in a press release. “They were cages of misery. The hungry and sick cats cried louder when we approached them, as if asking us to help them.”
The rescuers were first led there by a local man who believed his pet cat had been stolen by the slaughterhouse employees. The rescuers agreed to help him search — and among the 375 cats, they found his beloved pet was inside one of the cages.
