30 Cats Found Living In Sandpoint Home

SANDPOINT, Idaho. - The Panhandle Animal Shelter received a phone call from a Sandpoint police officer this week requesting assistance with a potential cat hoarding situation. It was reported that 30 cats were living in a single woman's home in the downtown area.

Staff and Volunteers of PAS loaded their cars with cat crates and headed over to the house to meet Sandpoint PD and evaluate the situation. What they found was a wonderful woman who had fallen on rough times. It was confirmed that she had 30 cats living in her home; all in very good health and extremely well cared for.  The woman was previously a breeder of Siamese cats. The cats in her home were all Siamese that she had breed but she didn't feel she could sell because they did not meet the sophisticated standards her clientele expected. Rather than give the cats to the shelter, she held onto them.

Toni Britton, a volunteer for the Panhandle Animal Shelter said, "These cats are outstanding and beautiful. This lovely lady has been an extremely conscious owner. Unfortunately she is having a hard time- her water has been turned off and she had to reach out for help."

Panhandle Animal Shelter was happy to step in and assist. PAS will obtain ownership of approximately 26 of the pure breed Siamese cats. They will vaccinate, micro-chip and spay or neuter them before they are put up for adoption.

If you are interested in adopting, PAS will accept adoption applications and cats will be available to go home in two weeks for $65.00. Questions should be referred to the Panhandle Animal Shelter at 208-265-7297.     

Donations to the Panhandle Animal Shelter are tax deductable and can be sent to 870 Kootenai Cut-off Road, Ponderay, ID 83854.

The Panhandle Animal Shelter serves Bonner County, Idaho and surrounding communities, providing for approximately 1600 lost, abandoned, neglected and abused animals every year. At the shelter cats and dogs receive a safe, nurturing environment and the opportunity to be placed into qualified new adoptive homes. PAS programs also assist in the safe and prompt return of lost pets; in population control by spay/neutering animals prior to adoption and community
