Hello,

BARC has taken in 136 cats in 4 days and we are overcapacity with felines.  Attached are the top 11 cats that have been in the shelter over 25 days and fully vetted.  We may have to notch their ears and release as community cats.  All are healthy, young and are not feral.  If interested in any please place a hold today.  We will do our best to hold them overnight.
