30 Cats Rescued From Abuse After Hoarder Evicted In Woodhaven, Queens

NEW YORK (AllForAnimalsTV) Volunteers from private NYC rescue organizations PuppyKittyNYCity and Greenpoint Cats came to the rescue of 30 cats who were witnessed being tossed out of the window of an apartment of an apparent hoarder who had been evicted several weeks prior. 

PKNYC had been alerted about one unresponsive cat seen outside 84-04 Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven, Queens. When they arrived, the full scope of the situation became immediately clear. Several of the animals had run into stores on the ground floor, and one was cowering on the top of a store awning.

AllForAnimalsTV Host Susan Richard, who has two adopted cats from PKNYC, saw the whole thing unfolding on Instagram and alerted the 1010 WINS newsroom, which dispatched reporter Mack Rosenberg to the scene.  His report is below.

All 30 cats were rescued, including the initial cat (who is alive and receiving medical attention) and another cat found in the apartment, who has major deformities in his hind legs (basically stumps). Several cats have been taken in by other rescues and all will be made available for adoption when given the OK.
