Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FFCAS) is in desperate need of donations to help the cats taken from the cat hoarders on Village Drive in Annandale.
FFCAS is raising funds for critical supplies to help the cats, as they need topical flea medication, antibiotics, and deworming medications. Some also need shots. Donations can be made at online and you can specify that your gift be restricted to these cats.
According to Christina Sadar, coordinator of Fairfax County’s blight abatement program and former chair of the Hoarding Task Force, “there’s no way someone can physically care for that many cats. Think of all the veterinary care.” She’s working with someone in another part of the county whose home is completely stuffed and thinks there’s nothing wrong. Hoarders tend to be “delusional,” Sadar says.
