Target: Jerry Buckley, Chief Executive Officer of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)
Goal: Thank the Pennsylvania SPCA for rescuring 260 cat from a single home
In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, animal safety authorities took away 260 cats from a Philadelphia home with a sign that declares the house to be the “Crazy Cat House.” Another sign on the fence outside the home says, “I’m the crazy cat lady. And this is the crazy cat house.” News reports claim that the condition of the animals in the house has declined considerably over the years, and that the cats had to be taken out of the house by authorities wearing gas masks. Workers spent time loading the animals into crates to take them to the Pennsylvania Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), where veterinarians could examine their overall condition. The residents of the house have not been charged with anything, and nobody has publicly announced their identity.
The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention SPCA has said that officials are working with the owner of the home for several weeks to rescue these animals. There have been numerous cases of animal hoarding in the United States, and the hoarders usually put the lives of their pets at risk by not providing them with the care they need to survive. Some people stop feeding, cleaning, and providing the basic necessities for their animals to live in a healthy environment. As in this situation, the number of pets continually grows while the condition of their environment start to decline.
Please thank the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the animal welfare authorities for rescuing these 260 cats.
Dear Jerry Buckley, Chief Executive Officer of the PSPCA,
If it wasn’t for your team at the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, I don’t think that the cats you recently rescued would have survived. Their owner kept over 260 cats in a single home. News reports say the conditions were so bad that the workers had to wear gas masks to be able to walk into the home and bring the cats out.
I know that this operation took weeks of planning on your part. I wanted to thank you for rescuing the cats and bringing them into your organization to be cared for by the many animal lovers and veterinarians who know how to take care of animals. Hopefully with the help of everybody involved, the cats will be able to regain their health and find better homes.
