Another good point. Rescuers do outreach. Associates of my group does that (NY PAW-New Yorkers Protecting Animal Welfare). They go to homes and gently convince owners to give up animals, at least some, let the rescuers take them to the vet for treatment, shots and spay/neuter, they bring food, beds, leashes, bowls, vitamins, meds, dog houses and hay if the owners are still in need of convincing dogs need to be inside, etc.. They then continuously work with owners who do seem to be OK, and the shelters would have to PTS a lot of animals if those were added to the numbers...

Your neighbor would be a prime candidate for outreach from rescuers, however they handle it. Just taking the cats away would not work-these people would get more, so the outreach people need to use "gentle persuasion".

Lousy grammar, BTW. I do not normally write this way.
