Thirty-three cats and three dogs were rescued by the Bucks County SPCA from a crowded and filthy hotel room in Feasterville-Trevose, writes Maggie Mancini for the PhillyVoice.

The room was littered with urine and feces and had a strong ammonia smell.

The hotel staffers contacted the SPCA after they performed a routine room inspection. When they arrived at the hotel, the SPCA’s law enforcement team found all the animals roaming freely around the premises.

Officers then brought the pets to SPCA’s shelter in Lahaska after serving their owner with a warrant. The animals were checked out by a vet and one of the cats was found to have pyometra, a severe uterine infection.

The animals will stay in the care of SPCA as they recover and until they can be placed for adoption. Charges against the animals’ owner are currently pending.

“Our staff are putting in long hours to ensure each animal is comfortable and well cared for,” said Linda Reider, executive director of the Bucks County SPCA. “The community can help by adopting available pets from both shelters to make room for new arrivals.”
