Keep Your Neighborhood Safe
from the Devastating Impact
of an Animal Collector
– Entire neighborhoods infested with fleas, condemned
houses and terrible odors. No one wants to
have an animal collector living next door; it could
impact your health and your property values. Unfortunately,
it could happen in any area of our community. Just
yesterday, it was reported that a jogger noticed
a terrible odor coming from a home in Greendale,
Wis. Police arrived at the home to discover
the house overrun with approximately 50 cats.
don't recognize the negative impact they are having
on themselves, animals or their neighborhood.
They often collect stray cats and provide them with
squalid living conditions, unable to provide even
minimal levels of nutrition, sanitation, shelter
and veterinary care.
Last year alone,
the Wisconsin Humane Society received and cared
for nearly 100 cats that were victims of animal
collectors. We have helped many people collecting
animals to get assistance. Learn what you can do
to keep your neighborhood safe.
DeGrave, Education Director for the Wisconsin Humane
Society, is available to talk with the media about
the pathology of animal collectors on Friday,
August 11 between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
