Hundreds of Cats Rescued--Photos Inside!

english mobile


On June 24, members of the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Team joined the Elk County Humane Society of St. Mary’s, PA, and other rescue groups to investigate a “sanctuary” known as the Animal Friends of Elk and Cameron Counties. Nearly 400 cats—including numerous kittens—were discovered living in desperate conditions on the first floor of a two-story commercial building located 120 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Many were suffering from health problems, including upper respiratory disease and eye infections, and have tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).

"This was one of the worst cases of animal hoarding this area has seen," says Tim Rickey, ASPCA Senior Director of Field Investigations and Response. "With such a large number of rescued animals, it is critical that we find them loving homes as soon as possible."

After receiving critical medical attention with the aid of the ASPCA’s Mobile Animal Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Unit, the cats were placed into the custody of the Elk County Humane Society. They are currently being cared for by a team of animal welfare experts at an emergency shelter.

"We are grateful to be in a position to provide resources and assistance in this overwhelming situation," says Rickey. "Our goal now is to get these animals into the loving homes they deserve."

While these cats are now safe, there are many other animals who are still suffering. Please consider providing a gift to the ASPCA this Independence Day so we can reach the thousands of abused and neglected animals who will need our help in the days, weeks and months ahead.
