Long Islanders Seeking Help for Missing Cats

Our Place to Paws received this message from Victoria Winn of Long Island:

"I am a local Long Islander that rescues Horses and cats. We learned of a situation where a couple living in Island Park have been luring neighborhood with canned food and a ‘double sided trap. They then transport the cats to the Sands Catering parking lot on Lido Blvd in Lido Beach. They have taken pets of their neighbors and overall they have stolen & dumped 30+ cats. These are domestic cats. We have set 2 traps (as that is all I have) and we caught one this morning and she was returned to her family in Island Park. A dozen families are missing their animals and we need advice how to this as well as volunteers, and perhaps borrow traps. We don’t know what to do if we catch cats and do not know who they belong to. Please advise how we can organize or what help is out there for these animals."

If you know of a way to help, please contact OurPlacetoPaws (at) (Replace the (at) with the "at "sign on your keyboard.) I will put you in touch with Victoria. Thank you!
