GREENBRIER, Ark. — Volunteers from the Humane Society of the Delta and Biscuit’s Legacy worked on a big project Thursday in an effort to save dozens of animals.
The crews rescued more than 100 cats and one dog in four buildings in Greenbrier, with the volunteers saying conditions inside were so bad that they had to wear hazmat suits.
Maggie Bradley a National Animal Cruelty Investigator said that this could be one of their biggest projects yet after finding more than 100 animals inside this location
“There are kittens that we can’t find,” Bradley said. “There’s empty canned cat food, you can’t see the floor for the empty cans and the smell is very overwhelming.”
Two non-profit organizations with The Humane Society of the Delta and Biscuit’s Legacy announced they will be working together to do what they can to help these animals.
The Director of the Humane Society Rita Merritt said that thanks to the help from other organizations and a $10,000 donation from the Bissell Foundation everyone is playing a role in helping the animals.
Volunteers said the person who lived there is currently not facing charges.
“An elderly woman, she has gone into assisted living and we’re trying to help out the situation,” Bradley said.
Getting the cats out of the houses is just step one, and now they have to recover before they can be adopted.

The Faulkner County Sheriff’s office is also assisting with the situation.
