A homeowner in Green Bay was housing 65 cats. That is, until the Wisconsin Humane Society stepped in.

The humane society rescued the cats from what they say were "deplorable conditions." Nearly every surface of the home was permeated in feces and urine, making living conditions for humans and animals unbearable. The humane society is calling it a "hoarding situation."

All of the cats will be seen by veterinary staff and receive treatment for any ailments. Most of the cats appear to be young adult Siamese mixes.

"They are safe now, but have a long road ahead," said the humane society in a release.

After bringing in the cats, the humane society is now housing over 1,000 cats across their campuses. For that reason, they are offering 50% off all kitten adoption fees through Oct. 31 and waiving adoption fees for adult cats all year long.
