More than 70 cats removed from abandoned home -- still more to be rescued

They've rescued more than 70 cats from the home in Belmont Central, Illinois and there are still more to go.

The home is abandoned and in foreclosure and is scheduled to be boarded up today. Inside the home and out, though, there've been more than 100 cats -- and that's just an estimate.
Photos from the scene of the discovery:
Right now there's a call for help to find homes for these cats –- even if they're temporary.
Paws Chicago and Tree House are spaying, neutering and providing other healthcare to the rescued cats, and they're hoping to get them all out before the city begins to board the home up.
