More than 100 cats and kittens have arrived coming from southern California to Portland.

The people behind the move hope it means they'll have a better chance of getting adopted, here in our area.

These animals landed Thursday afternoon and are now headed to be checked out by vets with the Oregon and Columbia Humane Societies and will be put up for adoption in the Portland area.

The flight had more than 125 cats and kittens on board.

The animals made the journey from Los Angeles where shelters there have been overwhelmed with the number of cats and kittens coming in as the wildfires that have plagued the area also played a role as well as several hoarding cases.

This flight was made possible by Wings Of Rescue, the ASPCA and the Jackson Galaxy Project.

Galaxy, who is the host of the show 'My Cat From Hell' on Animal Planet, made the trip with the rescues to Portland.

“Take a look in the face of anyone of these kittens right now, they would have been dead tomorrow every one of these guys. They are not stye, are gonna go home and they are going to live in Portland,” Galaxy said.

The animals are being checked out and Approximately 30 kittens from Thursday's arrival will be available for adoption on Friday and posted online at

Thursday’s flight was the second one Galaxy has done, the first one was to Seattle.
