25 cats seized from Niagara County homes


NIAGARA COUNTY, NY--- The Niagara County SPCA is investigating two separate incidents of animal hoarding, and now it is in need of help.

SPCA officials removed one cat from a home in Lockport on Wednesday. Niagara County SPCA Director Amy Lewis says the home was filled with items and they were not able to capture all of the cats.

"Her situation is a very typical hoarding case. Not just animals, but possessions. I was shocked. I've been doing this for nine years and this is probably the worst hoarding case that I've seen," says Lewis.

Traps have been set to try and catch the remaining 50 cats. The resident in this home has been hospitalized and likely will not face charges.
