A kitten named Pesto was among more than 80 cats rescued from a Salem home. Pesto has since been adopted from the Oregon Humane Society Salem campus. Other cats from the home are still available for adoption.

Two Salem residents are being charged with animal neglect of 87 cats found at a home in September.

Sherie Adams, 53, and Mitchell Farm, 52, were arraigned Wednesday on 87 counts of alleged animal neglect in the second degree for failing to provide minimum care for animals in their custody, according to court records.

Three cats have died — one was found dead at the home, one had to be euthanized and a young kitten did not survive.

The Oregon Humane Society was contacted by the Salem Police Department and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office to assist with getting the animals out of the home, located in the 1400 block of Larkspur Lane NW, and providing for their care.

Some cats have already fully recovered and are now available for adoption at both the Salem and Portland Humane Society campuses, spokesperson Laura Klink said. So far, 21 of the cats have been adopted from the Salem campus.
