The National Humane Society in Tampa has taken in more than two dozen cats after helping the television show "Confessions: Animal Hoarding" shoot an episode in Florida.

Now the agency is looking for help from animal lovers. Officials are looking for homes for the cats and kittens, and for food.

Carol Childs of the Humane Society says the emergency response team went to Punta Gorda on Monday to help Animal Planet videotape a show that will air in the next two months.

She says there are still about 15 adult cats left in the house that they hope to bring to Tampa later this week.

Childs says her contract with the network prevents her from talking about the hoarder, but says the person had about 45 cats in the house.
