Supervisors working to eliminate pet hoarding

OTTUMWA, Iowa) - A recent case of pet hoarding has Wapello County officials ready to take action to prevent future problems.

Last week, Sue Davis of Ottumwa, was cited for having over 90 cats and dogs in her on home on West Rochester.

Davis is on the board of the no kill Heartland Humane Society Shelter in Ottumwa.

Wapello County Supervisor Jerry Parker fears that at least some of the cats found at the Davis home were animals collected by the county.

Parker says that when the county collects stray cats, they are kept at a local vet's office for five days before being put down.

Parker believes Davis may have given the vet the impression that the cats were headed to Heartland Humane, knowing the that the shelter was full and she would have to try to care for them herself..." More & video
