A local cat rescue group will be allowed to remove, rehouse and care for 75-100 cats and kittens living at an unoccupied house in Corner brook, Newfoundland, Canada.
Neighbors complained for several years about the large number of cats in and around the house on Humbler Road in Corner Brook but were told that nothing could be done. A recent complaint to the RNC (Royal Newfoundland Constabulary) police brought an inspection of the property, where doors were left opened and the alarmingly large number of cats came and went from the home. The RNC called in the fire department, which sent in personnel wearing protective gear because of animal waste within the house.
The home owner has agreed to cooperate, and the city is allowing Corner Brook Scaredy Cat Rescue to remove the cats and save them. The group is looking for a building to keep the cats in as they are removed from the property and evaluated by a vet. The huge operation will strain the group’s resources, and they are asking the community for help.
The cats run the gamut from small kittens to mature cats, some of which are spayed and neutered. The goal is to save their lives. In addition to cash donations and supplies, the group is looking for foster homes for the kittens and cats.
The two videos of the cats on site were made by a neighbor.
