On Friday, May 16, The New Rochelle Humane Society, assisted by the Greenburgh Police Department and Greenburgh Animal Control, removed 62 cats from a home in White Plains NY.  The house has been condemned and the property is in foreclosure. The rescued cats need our help!

A small, dark, filthy room choked with garbage and infested with thousands of flies became a prison for 62 cats; some for many years. All of the cats were constricted to living in dank, cramped cages with barely room to lay down and without litter boxes. Most of the cages housed multiple adult cats; as many as four to a single cage. Several cats were caged as tiny kittens and have lived their entire lives in this environment. Cat pet carriers housed adult cats; the carriers were so small that the unfortunate prisoners were unable to turn around, stand or escape laying in their own feces and urine. At least five cats were kept in small cat traps, which are intended to catch a cat and deliver it to another location. One cat lived in a trap in this house for eight long years.

All 62 cats are now at the New Rochelle Humane Society where we are working hard to assess their needs. Unfortuantely, because they were kept in such deplorable conditions, many are in need of medical attention.

Please help us to care for these cats!  We need your generous support in order to help these cats. 

We also wanted to mention that a very generous anonymous donor has matched the first $1000 in donations.  Thank you so much to everyone who has been a part of this campaign.
