Animal Rescue League of NH Investigates 13th Hoarding Case
The Animal Rescue League of NH’s Animal Cruelty Investigator, Maureen Prendergast
was called in by the town of Deering to assist with a complaint of possible animal neglect
involving multiple cats. Ms. Prendergast was able to meet with the home owner initially who
willingly turned over 18 felines but then changed her mind about giving up the rest of the
animals. At that point, based on the condition of the initial cats that were surrendered, the police
decided to obtain a search warrant to seize the remaining animals. On Monday, June 28th, Ms.
Prendergast was able to seize an additional 18 felines and one dog living in deplorable conditions
from the property for a total of 37 animals.
Dr. Shalsee Gibbs from the Animal Medical Center Emergency and Referral of New England
volunteered her time to check out the initial 18 felines brought to the shelter. At that point she
found that in addition to general poor health, ear mites and severe dental infections, all were
suffering from severe upper respiratory and eye infections. The cats were all exposed to FIV,
(Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) a potentially fatal virus. Because of their exposure, the cats
will all be quarantined for two months prior to being available for adoption. All the felines from
this hoarding situation have been started on different forms of antibiotics such as Doxycycline
and Clavamox as well as Terramycin for their eyes. Several of the felines will most likely need
surgery for eye and teeth removals which are costs the League will ultimately absorb.
A Beagle was also taken into protective custody on June 28th due to the conditions of the home.
The 19 animals which were removed during a search warrant will not be available for adoption
until the case is resolved in court. This case is the 13th hoarding case the League has seen this
year, resulting in 234 animals being brought into the League from homes that were in deplorable
As each case comes in, the League’s medical bills for these animals skyrocket. At this point the
League is already 58% over budget for medical costs.
