Illustrating that the roots of animal hoarding are pathological and not financial, approximately 150 cats were discovered in March 2009 at Wendy Oughton’s million-dollar home in Chester Township. Ms. Oughton is now facing over 90 criminal charges of animal cruelty related to animal hoarding. The cats were allegedly living in deplorable conditions and the house, despite its value on paper, may be condemned. The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals seized over 20 cats in the initial raid, and was later able to successfully negotiate for the relinquishment of the remaining cats, with Oughton agreeing to pay for their cost of care during their recovery.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
