ASPCA Rescues Nearly 50 Cats in Oklahoma at Request of Terminally Ill Pet Parent

ASPCA Rescues Nearly 50 Cats in Oklahoma

Nearly 50 cats were removed from overcrowded conditions in mid-August at a private residence in Guymon, Oklahoma. The ASPCA stepped in to help at the request of a terminally ill pet parent who could no longer adequately care for her animals.

ASPCA responders, along with responders from the Humane Society of Tulsa, removed the cats from the trailer home and transported them to the Humane Society of Tulsa where they were medically assessed and cared for.

“When we visited the residence, we saw that urgent intervention was needed,” says Adam Leath, Southeast regional director of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. “It was truly a dire situation where the individual recognized that she had too many cats in her household and needed help removing and rehoming them so she can focus on getting help for herself.”
