Dozens of cats removed from filthy, cluttered home


GLEN ROCK, Pa. (WHTM) – A York County home is condemned after officials found dozens of cats living inside.

Neighbors say the house in Glen Rock was covered in feces, full of trash, and had no running water.

Mick Gilbert, a neighbor, watched as officials stepped inside the home.

“He had these Tupperware boxes that were full of cat feces, and he would stack them up,” Gilbert said.

Gilbert says problems started three years ago. The borough and SPCA knew of the problems, but nothing was done until last week.

“Somewhere along the way, someone did not do the right thing, and this is what happens when you don’t do the right thing,” Gilbert said.

Gilbert says when a Humane Society police officer obtained a warrant to search the home, dozens of feral cats were found living inside. Some were dead. 

Local shelters must now find homes for almost 50 cats that were removed from the home. It’s believed none of the cats have their vaccinations or are spayed and neutered.

Neighbors said the owner is staying in a nearby hotel. No charges have been filed, so far.
