GLENDALE, Ariz. -

A shelter for dogs and cats run by animal lovers has been ordered to shut down by the city of Glendale. The question now: what happens to the animals?

It's called Uncle Jack's Cats, and is located near 67th Avenue and Greenway. Its 55 cats and 15 dogs are now looking for new homes.

You come face to face with a cat everywhere you turn in this little home. They fill the living room. They've taken over the kitchen.

And in the back, it's dogs. Running and jumping everywhere. Dozens of animals in one house.

The city of Glendale says Uncle Jack's is running a non-profit business in a residential area.

"Our code compliance officers went out to investigate the situation and determined this shelter was in violation of the city code," says Kim Larson, City of Glendale.

The folks at Uncle Jack's are upset.

"I want to see we are left alone. We did not do anything wrong. There is nothing in the codes I can find that says we cannot have a shelter," says Paul Nicolato, Uncle Jack's Cats.

Actually Uncle Jack's has recently downsized. There used to be 125 cats in there and around 50 dogs.

But the city says the shelter must close down. So Uncle Jack's is looking for people to adopt these cats and dogs.

"I love these animals and they are healers and if anyone wants to adopt we would be glad to adopt some of these animals, they have their own personalities," says Krista Willard.

To adopt from Uncle Jack's call 602-518-7561
