300 Cats Rescued from a Single Toronto Apartment


300 Cats Rescued from a Single Toronto Apartment – yes three hundred as in a herd of cats.

I guess this was one of those crazy cat persons hoarding cats. Surprising the cats were in good health. Ironically, this was the second time in three weeks were over 100 cats where found in a single residence.

“It’s a terrible way for cats to live, if you know that someone has too many cats, it is best to report it sooner rather than later. Unsterilized cats breed prolifically, and with only a nine-week gestation, things get out of control very quickly. To make a report in the City of Toronto, call 311 and you will be directed to the appropriate department.”

No person can keep more than six cats in one dwelling unit, according to Toronto’s municipal code.

If you are in another town or city, check with your local city on how to report cat hoarding, or even animal hoarding.

“The euthanasia of even one animal that could have had a positive outcome is one too many.”

Janet Testerman, CEO of Young Williams Animal Center

They have saved 8,311 animals last year (2018). Of that number, 5,772 animals adopted. 1,102 went to rescue groups. 

Young Williams Animal Center achieves 'no-kill' status - YWAC is local to East Tennessee area serving the Knox County area. This is a huge milestone for pet centers.

“No-kill” means the center saved more than 90% of the animals that came through their doors. That is not an easy task. Young Williams doesn’t turn away any of its animals.

Of course, there is a lot of work ahead of them to keep this status. It is estimated they have around 10,000 animals come into their shelter per year.
