CALGARY — The Calgary Humane Society is over its capacity after seizures of more than 60 cats and birds.

The first seizure involved 35 cats and the other involved 27 birds.

Brad Nichols says both involved hoarding and charges are pending.

He says usually in hoarding the animals are feral and inbred animals that need a lot of medical attention.

But Nichols says the cats and birds appear well-adjusted.

"We expect they will make good house pets once treatable medical issues are resolved. If a potential adopter ever wanted to offer a new loving home to an animal at the core of an animal cruelty investigation, now is a great time to come in," said Nichols.

The Society is offering reduced adoption fees for the month of November.
