Free cat adoptions after Upper Darby animal hoarding case

    As SPCA officers in Philadelphia took dozens of animals from a South Philadelphia home yesterday, their colleagues in Upper Darby were doing something similar.

    After the township’s health department condemned a home Monday, Delaware County SPCA officers began the process of removing about 30 cats. That, combined with another hoarding case in Lansdowne last month, has filled the shelter with felines, as the Delaware County Daily Times reports. Cat adoptions are free for the rest of the month.

    The terrier-poodle mix rescued from the home can be adopted for $150.
