PERKIOMENVILLE >> The Mont­gomery County SPCA is look­ing for do­na­tions at their Perkiomenville lo­ca­tion to care for 240 an­i­mals that were res­cued from an Up­per Hanover home Oct. 18.

Ac­cord­ing to the Mont­gomery County SPCA about 240 an­i­mals were re­moved from a prop­erty in Up­per Hanover Oct. 18. The an­i­mals res­cued in­cluded fer­rets, guinea pigs, tur­tles, snakes and even al­li­ga­tors and skunks. They are be­ing cared for by the Mont­gomery County SPCA.

Au­thor­i­ties have not iden­ti­fied the home­own­ers but have told news out­lets they are also the own­ers of a home in Ma­cungie, Le­high County, from which au­thor­i­ties re­moved over 100 other an­i­mals ear­lier this week. The an­i­mals in­cluded dogs, ex­otic birds, large snakes and fish. Those an­i­mals were taken in by the Le­high County Hu­mane So­ci­ety, who said in a post that they have se­cured tem­po­rary place­ment for the an­i­mals through­out the du­ra­tion of the case.

The case is cur­rently un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to a post from the Mont­gomery County SPCA, the Perkiomenville fa­cil­ity is now ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help in pro­vid­ing nec­es­sary items to care for the hun­dreds of an­i­mals they have taken in.

“As many of you may know, the Mont­gomery County SPCA ex­e­cuted a search war­rant ear­lier to­day that re­sulted in the con­fis­ca­tion of up­wards of 240 an­i­mals. We have been work­ing dili­gently to care for th­ese many an­i­mals, but we are now ask­ing for your as­sis­tance,” read the post on the fa­cil­ity’s Face­book page.

The fa­cil­ity is look­ing to pro­vide the an­i­mals with items in­clud­ing green leaf let­tuce and spring mix let­tuce with­out spinach, as well as fer­ret, rat, guinea pig, and aquatic tur­tle food. Small an­i­mal ac­ces­sories such as ham­mocks and chew toys will also be ac­cepted and mone­tary do­na­tions to­ward the care of the an­i­mals are also wel­come, the SPCA said.

Mone­tary do­na­tions can be made on the Mont­gomery County SPCA’s web­site.
