The charges in this case stem from the removal of 107 live cats and 10 deceased cats from the address in Halton Hills.  The removal was in response to an anonymous tip from a member of the public concerned that there may be as many as 200 cats at the address.  The removal of the cats began on September 5th 2013.

The Oakville & Milton Humane Society continues to care for the cats, many of which have significant health issues. Of the 107 live cats removed from the house, one was in such poor health that after consultation with veterinarians the decision was made to humanely euthanize the cat in order to end its suffering.  “We are hopeful that with medical care and time, that these cats will be ready for adoption into the forever homes they so richly deserve” said Kim Millan, Executive Director for the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. “The addition of so many badly neglected cats has strained all of our resources and we are so grateful to everyone in our community for their support.”

Anyone with information pertinent to this case is asked to contact the OMHS anonymous tip line at 905-845-1551 ext 31.
