Overwhelmed Owner Agrees to Relinquish Cats to SDHS
Fourteen cats are now in our care after their owner agreed to accept help to care for his animals. Our Humane Law Enforcement responded to do a welfare check at a residence in the 1,100 block of East Grand Ave. in Escondido and picked up 10 cats on Friday, July 16, 2021. Humane Officers returned to pick up another four cats on July 19, 2021 and have made additional visits since to monitor the property for more cats.
The cats were taken to our Oceanside Campus for medical evaluation and care.
“We are very pleased with this outcome,” said Chief of Humane Law Enforcement Bill Ganley. “San Diego Humane Society is a resource for all animal-related needs and we applaud this owner for realizing he was overwhelmed and needed help.”
The cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and medically and behaviorally evaluated. Six of the cats will be returned to the owner upon his request, while the others will be placed up for adoption when ready.
