Man Tries To Save Doomed Animals

A man who couldn't bear to see more than three-dozen cats euthanized had admitted to breaking into an animal shelter and stealing the felines.

The News and Record of Greensboro says that Edward McIrvin decided last Monday night hours before the animals were to be killed that he would take them. Police Lt. Wendell Neville says McIrvin charges of felony breaking and entering and felony larceny.

Neville said McIrvin, 43, of Greensboro, returned the cats in good condition.

McIrvin hasn't given up trying to save the 37 cats he took. He brought $5,800 to the Reidsville Veterinary Hospital last Thursday to go for adoption fees and spaying and neutering the cats.

    What a sweet guy!! His heart is truly in the right place and hopefully he will be cleared of all charges. We need more caring people such as him in this world!
