When folks have a "need" or "request" on what to do with the animals, please list the state and county (at a minimum the state) where the cats (or other type of pet) are located so someone can adequately respond.

RedRover, based in California, is one of many national animal rescue groups that also handle animal hoarding cases.

Bringing animals from crisis to care
The RedRover Responders program shelters animals displaced by natural disasters and other crises, like criminal seizures of puppy mills and hoarding cases.

Please note, the people who work in animal welfare do not euthanize (kill) animals. A pet has to be ill or injured to the point they will not recover, before euthanasia is considered.

Ok, I understand you have an issue with this person, but just because she had terrible judgement, why should cats be killed? You really think the best answer is to kill 27 cats, because she didn't do what was right in the first place? Sorry, but that is not the answer. Finding these cats loving homes and getting her remaining three fixed is a better answer. Is it easy? Not at all, but putting them down certainly isn't either.

I have been crying for two days. I just found out that a family member of mine has 30 cats.

This is a relatively young female with a good white collar professional job and a home owner. She is alone, though. Her house is destroyed and a couple of felines having a couple of litters can reach a high number fairly quickly, but obviously there are issues here.

I am in despair, because I'm out of the country and have been gone for eight years. The person will be housing myself and my family on our return at the end of this year, and she's very excited about it. She said that cats had destroyed her home and she does not want delivery people there, etc. Finally she disclosed to me why, she has thirty cats because she could not "afford" to have them spayed or neutered. This is just silly talk. First of all, if the cats are not licensed they are illegal. They also have to be vaccinated and she's only allowed three.

Also, she is clearly feeding thirty cats I HOPE! I would think so, she's not that bad is she? She's not a crazy person by any means, this comes as a total shock to me.

I am so angry that my family members that are around her, and in contact with her have not done something. I was assured by one that they "tried" talking to her. Sorry but this is a CRISIS, and she could go to jail.

I looked up cat sanctuaries in her area, and there are many but they don't offer information easily on how to surrender a "pet" and some sites are outright judgmental and accusatory.

Each place has a procedure that sounds like a pain, and they all claim to be full. This was part of the reason this situation got so bad in the first place.

I don't have anger toward my family member, because something is obviously wrong with her. I do completely disagree with her however about euthaniization. There is no downside to going to sleep and being unconscious. I also think it's demented that she would be panicked about that but NOT panicked about them being born in the first place. That is where her diligence and adamant behaviors should have been applied. She should have been 'omg these cats cannot give birth'
not...omg a peaceful sleep. That to me, is insanity.

I'm feeling so much right now, but I'll stop here.
