A Hartford woman with a giving heart is having trouble finding homes for some stray feline friends. With no animal shelter around, taking on the task alone is burning a hole in her pocket.
Fancy Campbell has had some extra company at her home in Geneva County. "There's so many, I started feeding them. I need help placing them in homes."
Campbell started putting food out for the cats; one led to two, then two eventually added to more than 10.
"There's about 12 to 14 that come up here to eat,” Fancy says. “I feel sorry for them and I can't see them going hungry, so I spend $100 or more a month feeding them."
Campbell says she just wishes someone could pick up the feline friends and find them a home.
However, the problem with that is, there’s no animal shelter in Geneva County.
Mayor Sorrells said, "We don't have facilities that, like Dothan or Houston County would have to accommodate cats."
Mayor Sorrells says Geneva County only deals with stray dogs and rarely has any problems with cats. "About the only option we have would be to contact the vet and try to get some guidance from there."
In the meantime, Campbell hopes that some resolution will be made and these four-legged friends can find a permanent family.
Mayor Sorrells says there is no immediate plan to create a shelter for felines.
