50 CATS have been rescued from a squalid house that pretended to be an Animal Shelter.
In a shocking rescue 50 domestic cats have been rescued from squalid conditions where the property had no running water or electricity.
The Guardia Civil assigned to SEPRONA in Rivas Vaciamadrid carried out the rescue from a home in Arganda del Rey where animals were kept in deplorable conditions where they were also overcrowded.
The rescue was made after a neighbour discovered the existence of the Colony in a dilapidated house and reported it to the authorities. After the complaint was received authorities tried to locate the owner and discovered that the house was being rented but the woman actually lived in Madrid.

Investigations were carried out and discovered that the woman had set up an animal rescue, but did not have any of the necessary paperwork. She lacked a licence for the animal shelter and had not requested any type of permission from the local City Council.
The animals were found and rescued from filthy conditions where the living space was a cramped 10 square metres and the house was in a dilapidated state and appeared to have been abandoned. The house did not even have running water or any electricity.
With assistance from local police and the Arganda del Rey City Council the animals have safely been rescued and the city council has taken over the care of the cats.
