Working cats

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 by The Press in News Briefs


Over the course of the last several months, the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has rescued cats from terrible conditions, often referred to as hoarding houses, finding numerous cats who are under-socialized to humans.

These cats are often rescued from cruelty and neglect and are not accustomed to human contact.

The Pennsylvania SPCA works to find live outcomes for all of these animals, including adoption, rescue and in this case creating a working cats program.
