CLARKSBURG — Two Wilsonburg women have pleaded guilty in a case in which the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department found about 50 cats living inside their dwelling.
A third of the cats were sick or in distress, according to Harrison Sheriff’s Lt. Greg Scolapio. The rest were in “decent shape,” he said.
Overall, conditions were “deplorable,” Scolapio said.
Forty-eight cats were turned over to Harrison County Animal Control after law enforcement served a search warrant on the dwelling at 20 Wilsonburg Road earlier this week, Scolapio alleged.

I love cats. They are so beautiful. I hope people take them. If you have a farm house , there is plenty of room.

I saw the pictures in paper. Look like beautiful statues

Good Work. Lt. Scolpio, You work for the pets. Please talk to the Vets. to lower the price for spaying and neautering. It can be expensive. Vets need to lower prices. So there will not be so many litters.

Cats are beautiful.

There was a place in Morgantown called Animal Friends. They would do spaying and neutering for a discount price.

Good Hope Animal Clinic used to spay and neuter for a discount price.

Vets are the problem in Clarksburg.

The problem everywhere is people who will spend thousands on their toys, but refuse to pay for proper care of their pets, and then drop them off out in the country to become someone else's problem. I only had one or two cats at a time, but they had a better health plan than I did. They had me willing to pay for their care. If you can't afford that, then don't have pets.

Cat lovers love their cats. I am saying that Vets are the problem. Greedy Vets want to much to fix their babies. people who want to take care of their beautiful cats. Clarksburg Vets charge way to much.

Unless they all get adopted (Adoption fee for dogs is $150, for kittens is $85, and adult cats $55 or two for $85), they'll probably be euthanized.
