On Wednesday, June 26th, the Community Service Officers (CSO) with the Hannibal Police Department were called to a home in the 1600 block of D Street. The CSO(s) seized 31 cats from inside and around the residence. A majority of the cats were not in good health and likely not able to be adopted. This is an unfortunate circumstance for the animals and a reminder why there is a city ordinance allowing city residents three cats per household. The public is encouraged to spay or neuter your cats to help prevent similar instances from happening. People can surrender their animals to CSO’s or directly at the Northeast Humane Shelter, 2923 Warren Barrett Drive.
