22 cats living in poor conditions removed from a home in Lansing

On June 23, 2022 Ingham County Animal Control (ICAC) responded to a welfare complaint in the 1600 block of Mill Stone in Lansing which resulted in the surrender of 22 cats.

While investigating the complaint, officers discovered the cats to be living in unsanitary conditions. The owner of the property willingly surrendered the cats and has been cooperating with the investigation. ICAC officers will be requesting criminal charges through the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office due to the condition the animals were living in.

Prior to this case, the shelter was already at capacity for cats. With the added number from this case, the shelter will not be able to accept owner surrender cats for the near future while they care for and give proper treatment for the 22 brought in. 

If anyone would like to help with the influx of cats in ICACS’ care, monetary donations and donations of Purina One dry cat food are appreciated.
