"She's done a really good job of trying to take care of them but they really need to be taken care of by professionals," says Smith.
Two by two, workers at Turpentine Creek loading up cats like Austin and Duke and driving them almost two hours, to their new home in Eureka Springs.
"These animals are coming from a mountaintop where they are not seeing a lot of people :47 we're all strangers to them," says Smith.
So of course, these guys are a little on edge.
"He's scared you're seeing an animal on a first rescue and we just got back. This is the most dangerous part we're doing is the rescue part.."
But a risk that's worth it.
"It's very important that they're not put down mostly because they are endangered species," says Smith.
But saving them comes at a price.
"We did some hard figuring on it and just to bring these animals in it's going to cost us about 200,000 dollars," says Smith.
Funds Turpentine Creek is now hoping will roll in from donations.
