Cat hoarders

Charged under new Ontario animal cruelty legislation.

Louise Hindle, co-ordinator of the Cat Rescue Network, said many people who rescue cats live in neighbourhoods with high turnover and have low incomes themselves. They can’t afford to get the animals spayed or neutered and are soon overrun with cats and kittens.

“People who want to rescue are trapped,” she said. “They either walk away from an animal that’s frozen in the ice… or they have animals in their house that they can’t afford to take care of.”

She said right now in Ottawa, it costs $100 or more to spay and neuter a cat. She would like to see a program that makes it more affordable.
