The Niagara County SPCA posted the following statement regarding allegations of releasing indoor cats to the outdoors:

Recently, the Niagara County SPCA has been accused of releasing indoor cats to the outdoors. This is simply not true and yet, one more attempt by the same group of individuals to defame the great work that the Niagara County SPCA does on a daily basis.

In 2019, the Niagara County SPCA took in 1,584 cats and, so far this year, has taken in 1,056 cats. In collaboration with Feral Cat Focus and Ten Lives Club – two area cat rescue organizations – the Niagara County SPCA has found appropriate placement for every single healthy cat that has been brought in.

Since becoming a NO KILL shelter in 2012, the Niagara County SPCA has saved 16,063 lives. In fact, on July 28, 2020, a Niagara County SPCA animal control officer drove over four (4) hours to transport two (2) FIV/FELV feral cats to The Best Little Cat House sanctuary in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Susan Agnello-Eberwein, Niagara County SPCA Board President, in a prepared statement, said, “These accusations are 100% fabrications and it is a shame that certain individuals engage in conduct that harms our ability to care for the animals we so dearly love.”
