CENTER POINT, Ind. (WLFI) – Winter weather has not only been problematic for people, but also for the animals of a regional rescue center.

The Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Center Point, Ind. is home to more than 225 exotic cats. Owner Joe Taft said the cost of propane and caring for the cats is pushing costs past $60,000.

He said the Rescue Center has an annual budget of $700,000.

Taft said while the winter means more money going out, it also means less money coming in. He said the number of visitors and donations has dropped this year.
