UTICA – Several cats were recently found abandoned in a Utica apartment, according to the CNY SPCA.

SPCA officials say the agency’s Cruelty Department received calls regarding abandoned animals in both Oneida and Onondaga counties. When SPCA investigators checked out an apartment at Olbiston Apartments, located at 1431 Genesee St. in Utica, they found five cats abandoned inside.

In Onondaga County, investigators found five cats, six puppies and three adult dogs abandoned at a home on Burlington Drive in Manlius.

SPCA officials say all of the abandoned animals are on hold at this time to give officers a chance to find the people associated with both cases.

The CNY SPCA says that to date, their agency has brought in 484 animals due to animal cruelty and neglect.
