| Published on April 3, 2024

A person is facing charges following the discovery of a dog, a rabbit, a turtle, and thirty-six cats and kittens living in appalling conditions in a home in Chester County. Among the animals was a one-month-old kitten, named Roo, found with one of its front legs missing and wrapped in duct tape.

The Brandywine Valley SPCA was alerted to the situation after responding to a report of a stray dog in Coatesville. They found Roo in need of urgent medical attention and took her to their West Chester Campus for emergency treatment.

Adam Lamb, the CEO of BVSPCA, expressed deep sorrow over the kitten’s ordeal, emphasizing the organization’s dedication to her recovery.

Roo, who weighed only 1.5 pounds, underwent successful emergency surgery and is currently being cared for in a foster home.

Upon investigating the suspect’s residence, officers encountered the animals in extremely poor conditions. A total of 38 animals were rescued, with one kitten found deceased and others suffering from various health issues such as infected eyes, untreated wounds, and respiratory infections.
