Four out of the estimated 400 cats were taken to the Echo Hollow Veterinary Clinic on Tuesday to receive diagnosis and treatment for ear mites, flees and internal parasites.

Now that rescuers have obtained legal permission to remove the cats, animal activists hope that once the cats are treated and healthy, they can send the cats to rescue organizations that will give them the opportunity to be adopted by families. 

"We have people that have offered to foster. They've offered to help us trap. They've donated money for their care. People have just been super generous," said Tamara Barnes, board member of Save the Pets. 

There are a plethora of organizations willing to help the colony of cats and activists said they will continue to do as much as they can to help.
