Oct 26, 2010 BENNINGTON, Vt.
(AP) — A Vermont town is getting help paying the expenses it's racking up as officials care for 84 cats seized from two cars.
Bennington Police Chief Paul Doucette says the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is providing the town $5,000 to help cover the cost of caring for the cats, seized Oct. 8 after they were noticed in two cars in a town parking lot.
Fifty-four-year-old Regina Millard and 61-year-old Bertha Ryan, sisters from Troy, N.Y., are now facing animal cruelty charges.
Doucette tells the Bennington Banner that with the help of the ASPCA, the town has received about $6,000 in grants to help care for the animals. The town's cost could reach $10,000.
