HUDSON, NEW YORK (Mid-Hudson News) - PetSmart Charities has donated $14,000 to the Dutchess County SPCA to help it defray the cost of caring for 218 cats rescued from two hoarding situations. The money will be used to cover some of the cost of providing vaccinations and other medications for the cats.

A total of 18 cars were rescued after they were abandoned in an apartment building and 200 cats were seized from a single home. All of the cats were signed over to the SPCA.

The animals required examinations, vaccinations, spay/neuter and other operations and many require additional medical care for untreated infections.

“Hoarding situations are dangerous and traumatic for companion animals,” said Joyce Garrity, SPCA executive director. “We are working day and night to help the cats recover and to get them adopted.”
