LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)---At Louisville's Animal House Adoption Center, there are dozens kittens are looking for a new home.
This comes weeks after some of them were taken from a home on Dolphin Court.
Officials with Louisville Metro Animal Services say they took in 25 cats and kittens from the home. MAS Director Justin Scally says this is just one of the neglect cases been dealing with lately.
Other cases involving cats and dogs have been more severe.
"Unfortunately we've seen a rash of true animal abuse cases here in Louisville Metro," says Justin Scally.
On Thursday, Louisville Metro police arrested 25-year-old Shaun McKinney for beating a cat to death with a broom on St. Catherine Street. Animal officials removed 6 other cats from the house to protect them.
Police are still looking for another man, 29-year-old Charles Mills, who officials say was charged with animal torture for beating a cat so severely on Dulworth Drive that it later died.
A dog was also recently dumped outside the gate at MAS's Manslick Road facility.
"Unfortunately the injuries were so extensive that the dog had to be euthanized due to his injuries and we still to this day don't know whose responsible," says Justin Scally.
Scally says these types of crimes against animals need to be taken seriously.
"The reality is that research indicates that folks that commit violent crimes and abuse animals are five times more likely to commit a violent offense towards a person," says Justin Scally.
He says, the only way to stop it is for community members to take a stand.
"And say we aren't going to tolerate this. Anyone whose going to abuse a voiceless animal, an animal who is defenseless, is a coward and we need to take a stand against these types of crimes," says Justin Scally.
Adoption specials are in place at Animal House for the neglected kittens and all other cats as well. Kittens are $35 and cats are $9.
Metro Animal Services is encouraging anyone with information on animal abuse crimes to give them a call.
