BREAKING NEWS: 56 cats rescued from deplorable conditions in Middletown this week by the Office of Animal Welfare’s Delaware Animal Services law enforcement team. The owners have been charged with animal cruelty.
OAW called us to assist in securing a large number of cats living in a single wide trailer. The joint OAW-BVSPCA team removed 56 living cats and one deceased cat.
Many of the cats have hair loss from severe flea dermatitis, several are emaciated, and some suffer from severe upper respiratory conditions. The cats range in age from juveniles to 10 years old. They have been surrendered into the custody of the Brandywine Valley SPCA, where they are being treated and will be placed up for adoption. Despite their living conditions, the cats are remarkably well socialized.
Some of the cats have started going up for adoption at our New Castle and West Chester Campuses. Others will be available based on each cat’s medical needs and time needed to adjust.
