TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There are 19 more cats and kittens calling the Pima Animal Care Center home Tuesday night, May 23. According to PACC, they were rescued from a hoarding situation. 

All the felines were getting medical check-ups, with the medical team looking for everything from parasites to dehydration and other possible health problems that come from hoarding situations. These evaluations were conducted before the cats were taken into the shelter. 

According to Dr. Sarah Rios, many of the cats are missing teeth, but that is good news, as that seems to be the only obvious health issue the cats have. 

Right now though, PACC is extremely overcrowded and in need of adopters and foster families.
