Albany Animal Hoarding – Two Cases In One Week

Albany Animal Control officers and the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society had their hands full with animal hoarding in two different place in less than a week.

Dog And Cat

One case happened on June 19. That involved nine cats and four dogs living in deplorable conditions, which included feces covering most of the floor. That was also in a house that was condemned. The cats were all infested with fleas and the dogs had dental problems and were emaciated. One dog’s condition was so bad that it was put down.

According to the Director Of Operations at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, Tina Murray, said that “the owner wants the animals back.” The humane society is going to keep the animals safe and pursue criminal charges. They just want to make sure that the animals do not end up in the same conditions and will remain safe. Then there will be no charges.

On Tuesday night, 30 cats that were covered with fleas were surrendered by an Albany woman. In the story from News 10 ABC, the cats were also in need of shots. They were all considered to be in ok condition.

The animals from both cases will soon be put up for adoption.
