TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – It’s a scene that’s become all too common here in the Wabash Valley.
Officials rescued approximately 15 cats from a home on Kennett Drive Wednesday in Vigo County. This is the second time in two weeks that officials have had to go into homes and take in neglected pets.
Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing stated that this is not an acceptable way to treat animals.
“If you’re going to have pets you have to be a responsible pet owner, that’s what it’s all about,” Ewing said. “You can’t just have hundreds of litters of cats and dogs and whatever and then not take care of them. I don’t know why people don’t just figure that out.”
Another issue at hand is overcrowding at the Terre Haute Humane Society which leaves no place for neglected pets to go.
