MCSPCA Releases Video of Woman Abandoning 20 Cats in Two Cages, Asks Public to Identify Her

The Monmouth County SPCA released surveillance video taken outside the facility’s front doors, showing a woman dropping off 20 cats in two cages.

The MCPSCA said the woman left the cats outside early Saturday morning. They were “stuffed” into two crates without food or water. A note was also left stating the animals’ caretaker had passed away.

The person in question appears to be a white female with brown hair who drove up to the building in Eatontown in a black Mazda Cx-7. The license plate had been blocked out with blue tape.

“We understand that this individual was trying to do the right thing, however, it is totally inappropriate and unsafe to abandon animals outside β€” not to mention, illegal by New Jersey state law,” representatives of the MCSPCA said. “The Monmouth County SPCA is always here to help, as we have been doing for years and years, and we’re saddened that this woman felt abandoning these animals was her only option.”

The cats were found this morning and taken inside to be medically assessed. They were given beds and food, and are now being cared for by the staff of the MCSPCA.
