KNDE-FMs Kittypalooza Provides Care to 60 Rescued Cats in Brazos County, Texas

Topic: Animal Protection

Bryan Broadcasting-owned KNDE-FM College Station, Texas, held a "Kittypalooza" drive to raise money for the medical care of 60 cats seized from an animal-hoarding situation in Brazos County. Due to their cramped and filthy living conditions, some of the cats were sick and struggling to survive.
