Caboodle Ranch Cat 'Sanctuary' Operator Faces Cruelty Charges Based on Evidence of Systemic Neglect and Unnecessary Suffering

Lee, Fla. -- Today, based on
evidence gathered during a PETA undercover investigation, Madison County
law-enforcement officials, with the aid of humane organizations, are seizing
hundreds of animals from so-called "sanctuary" Caboodle Ranch, Inc.
PETA's five-month investigation found systemic and sometimes fatal neglect of
animals at the "rescue sanctuary," which has long been a source of
complaints registered to PETA.
Video footage taken by a PETA investigator shows cats suffering from upper-respiratory
infections so severe that the animals gasped for air and struggled to breathe
as mucus dripped from their noses. One cat, Lilly, was left to languish for
months with a perforated cornea and eventually died. PETA's investigator found
cats covered with flies and confined to areas littered with vomit, waste, and
trash. Areas in which medical drugs were stored were crawling with maggots.
PETA submitted detailed complaints to county officials and the Third Judicial Circuit
of Florida State Attorney Robert L. Jarvis. Cruelty-to-animals charges against
Craig Grant, Caboodle Ranch's founder and operator, are pending.
"Cats at Caboodle Ranch
suffered from open wounds, debilitating respiratory disease, parasites, eye
ulcerations, and more," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch.
"'No kill' was really 'slow kill' for hundreds of cats in this grossly inhumane
documented the following:
PETA is also submitting
formal complaints to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services and to the Internal Revenue Service asking that Grant be investigated
and charged accordingly.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
