Over 120 cats seized
The SPCA in Nova Scotia says three people have pleaded guilty to animal cruelty following the discovery of more than 120 cats in a Halifax-area home.
The charges were laid under the Animal Protection Act in April after investigators with the SPCA seized the cats from the property in Dartmouth.
The cats were taken to Nova Scotia shelters in Kings, Colchester and Pictou counties — an effort the SPCA estimates cost more than $15,000 within the first few weeks.
The SPCA says several cats remain in its care.
The organization says the three people charged in the case have been banned from owning animals for 10 years.
