We are VERY HAPPY to report, the majority of the cats removed from a Lake Station home (as was reported in recent local news) have been taken in by Chicago-land rescue groups!. We are deeply appreciative of their work and of the public’s concerns. Not only were local citizens generous to bring in donations but people from Chicago sent in monetary donations.
If you would like to know more about the problem of animal hoarding, the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University supports the Hoarding of Animals Research Consortium (HARC). They define animal hoarding as “Failing to provide even minimal standards of nutrition, sanitation, shelter, and veterinary care, with this neglect often resulting in illness and death from starvation, spread of infectious disease, and untreated injury or medical condition.” Their website is: http://vet.tufts.edu/hoarding/ .
