LANE COUNTY Ore. -- Volunteers with cat rescues are answering a call to action to help hundreds of cats at a rural Lane County home.
Shad Carson, a volunteer with Cat Rescue & Adoption Network, is working with a woman on the property who says she's been taking care of cats while the property owner is in the hospital.
He is donating cat food and seeing what else the animals need. Carson said if the property owner allows, they are willing to take in some of the cats that can be rehoused.
"Somebody's got to do something," Carson said. "It's not the cat's fault. It's a major problem."
Eugene nonprofit Save the Pets is also working to help the cats. They have set up a donation account and say the money raised will go directly to pay for food and medical supplies for the cats.

If the owner allows cats to be transported and fostered, you can find out how to help by emailing savethepetsOR@gmail.com.
The woman who is taking care of the cats told KEZI 9 News she is thankful for the help.
Officals at the Greenhill Humane Society said they previously gave her information on how they could help, including getting free pet food from their food bank, letting them borrow traps and doing free spaying and neutering.
