KENTVILLE, N.S. - SPCA investigators took 16 flea- and worm-infested cats from a property in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley on Friday.
A veterinarian was checking the 13 kittens and three adult cats and those that are healthy or treatable will go to the Kings County SPCA shelter in Kentville for adoption.
Earlier last week, the SPCA made an even larger seizure, taking 64 cats and 25 dogs from two homes in Port Felix, Guysborough County.
The animals were taken after a complaint.
According to the release, some of those animals had open sores, deformities, rotting teeth or missing eyes or ears. After an assessment by a veterinarian, 24 of the cats were euthanized.
The rest of the animals are being housed at the Metro SPCA shelter in Dartmouth, and once they are healthy and socialized, they will be put up for adoption.

    These stories are becoming more and more in the news. I think it is a sin when situations like this happen and all those animals needing to be eueuthanized. I think the people should be charged with abuse and given a hefty fine. Maybe this would be an eye-opener for them when they think about having another pet. As an owner of multiple pets, it is our job as their owners to care for them and provide the necessary medical treat they need. I know that vet services are expensive but everyone needs to remember that when they see a cute little kitten or puppy.
