A local cat rescue in Rexburg says they're in “desperate” need of volunteers

Local college student KD Hays started Rexburg's Superhero Animal Rescue almost two years ago.

It's is a soon-to-be non-profit, and they rely completely on volunteers and donations.

KD works with local animal shelters help prevent overcrowding, and take in as many stray cats as possible.

They also specialize in taking pregnant cats or litters.

The rescue has taken care of as many as 70 cats and kittens at once.

But KD and her co-founder Amy Loomis say they don't have enough volunteers, and they each spend over 60 hours working for the rescue a week.

"So a lot of the times it just ends up being me or Amy here cleaning by ourselves and it takes us about six hours,” says KD.

“And you know people have families to support and so it's hard so we really need the help. We just can't do it by ourselves."

KD says they can't stay operational without help, and there would be a lot more stray cats without the rescue.
