NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) – A south-central Minnesota animal shelter is dealing with 20 sick cats that were abandoned outside its front door.

A volunteer found the cats in boxes outside the Brown County Humane Society on Saturday morning.

Holes were made in the boxes so the abandoned cats could breathe. But Humane Society volunteer Gerald Woodley says the cats were in poor health, with ringworm and upper respiratory illnesses.

The Journal reports the sick cats are now isolated in the shelter, away from the rest of the cats. Veterinarians were treating some of the newfound cats.

Animals surrendered to the Humane Society cost owners $75 each. Woodley says treating the ill cats will cost the Humane Society far more than the $1,500 that would have been generated if the cats were properly surrendered.
