East Coast Residents: Tell High Industries to Return the Cats and Save the Kittens
After hearing that the High Concrete Company, located in Buena Borough of Atlantic County, New Jersey, was trapping cats to be killed, Alley Cat Allies reached out and respectfully asked for a moratorium on trapping and a meeting to discuss options, including Trap-Neuter-Return. Management at the plant and a representative from the corporate office in Lancaster, Pennsylvania claimed they would stop trapping at the plant, but we have confirmed that the roundup continued.
We have already pulled from the shelter 45 cats and kittens who were trapped at the concrete plant—and they need to be returned home. With kitten season in full swing, we know there are young kittens who remain on the plant grounds who will not survive being separated from their mothers.
Just this evening, we were informed that they have ordered a caregiver to cease and desist feeding the cats, so the remaining cats on the property will starve. A company representative at the corporate office tried to claim that the 80-acre property has no remaining cats, but we are aware of cats that have not been accounted for.
High Industries has companies all along the east coast. Tell them you don’t think this is the way businesses should operate.
