After both parties and their attorneys have agreed, the Horry County Animal Care Center will hold a cat adopt-a-thon Saturday for the cats that were recently removed from Sacred Vision Animal Sanctuary.
The adoption will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at a temporary holding facility at 200 River Road, behind Socastee High School.
The adoption fee is $25 per cat, which includes spaying/neutering, microchip, Feline RCP vaccine, 1-year rabies vaccine, Feline Leukemia testing, deworming, flea treatment, and 30-days free of pet health insurance.
All of the cats eligible for adoption have been examined by a license veterinarian and have also received antibiotic therapy, according to county officials.
The adoption comes after Horry County took the cats after a judge granted a temporary order for emergency care because authorities were concerned for the cats' welfare.
Of the 237 cats seized last week from SVAS, a nonprofit, no-kill shelter, 107 were euthanized, 29 were returned to sanctuary owner Elizabeth Owen, and the remaining 101 have been in the care of the county at the temporary facility in Socastee.
