PSPCA Rescues 17 Cats From Bridesburg Rowhome

Posted: Updated:

For the second time in one week, officers from the PSPCA are rescuing cats from another hoarding situation.

17 cats have been rescued so far from a rowhome on the 2000 block of Margaret Street.   The house is filled with debris and the search continues for more animals.

Officers are out on the scene interviewing the owner of the house.

Last week, PSPCA rescued 14 cats from an East Mt. Airy neighborhood.  That owner was cited for animal cruelty.

"Summer is typically a time when we begin to see a lot of hoarders," said George Bengal, Director of Humane Law Enforcement for the Pennsylvania SPCA. "With warmer temperatures odors and insect infestations that often accompany hoarding situations become more apparent. Thankfully we will be able to get these animals in a healthier situation."
