In Defense of Animals (IDA), other rescue groups, volunteers and locals rushed in June 2002 to rescue more than 400 sick and malnourished animals from squalor conditions at the Ark Animal "Sanctuary". Now, more than a year later, the animals have recovered and remain in foster care, awaiting a budget-delayed court decision that is re-scheduled for a five-day trial September 22nd-26th. The District Attorney, Kayla Korish, stated she would be willing to settle out of court if Eddie White, charged with 25 counts of 2nd degree animal neglect, would agree to one year of jail time. White is the sole defendant in the case.

IDA continues to monitor the case, has taken on the task of fundraising for the staggering veterinary bills, and is overseeing the foster care of
more than 60 cats.
