Cats removed from home in Schuylkill County

Officials with the Hillside SPCA removed the cats from a home near Pottsville.

ASHLAND, Pa. — Members of the Hillside SPCA removed about 50 cats from a home in Schuylkill County.

The removal took place at a home along Pine Street in Butler Township, near Ashland, on Thursday afternoon.

Traps were set up to catch all the felines; some of the animals have fleas and others are sick. 

Hillside SPCA took the cats in, but the shelter was near capacity with other cats in need.

A family of three was residing in the home at the time.
