Large-Scale Surrender Cases Bring Influx of Cats to HRA

At HRA, we’re committed to helping every animal in need. Yesterday, HRA’s Field Services team executed a search warrant and seized four cats living in deplorable conditions at a residence in Northeast DC. The search warrant was issued after HRA received a tip that there were a large number of cats inside and outside the property. Further investigation revealed a strong odor of cat urine emanating from the residence.
The cats were transported to the Humane Rescue Alliance where they received necessary medical care. Officers also recovered a deceased cat in the residence. The case is currently under investigation by HRA's Humane Law Enforcement division.

Today, HRA’s field services team brought in 11 cats in need of urgent placement, as part of a large-scale surrender case. This recent intake brings the total number of cats we have in our care to nearly 200.
