PINNACLE, N.C. -- Thirty-two adult cats are in need of good homes after being rescued from a home in Pinnacle.
The Stokes County Sheriff's Office says animal control officers were called out to the home because of a kitten in the road. Officers say the kitten had a bad flea infestation. After returning the kitten to a home nearby, officers became suspicious of animal hoarding and started an investigation.
Chief Deputy D.W. Lawson says the woman who lives there will be served a criminal summons for animal cruelty.

In the meantime, the Stokes County Animal Shelter needs to find these cats good homes. The shelter says because there are so many, the cats are staying at an off-site location.
The shelter says they have a limited amount of time to get the cats adopted, so if you can take a chance on saving a life, please stop by.
Right now, the adoption rate for each cat is $60 which includes spay/neuter and rabies vaccine.
