"Providing assistance to the Niagara County SPCA in their efforts to capture, evaluate and treat 50 to 100 cats left in a Somerset home is a public health priority. Today, we are bringing our clinic trailers to provide additional resources to the SPCA for conducting triage and treatment on the cats rescued from the dwelling in Somerset," Elaine Roman, director of the health department's division of public health planning and the emergency preparedness, said Monday.

On Saturday, the health department transported more than 100 crates, travel carriers, food dishes and litter boxes so each cat could be isolated in its own cage for observation and treatment. The Niagara County Department of Health purchased the trailers with funds awarded through a competitive Department of Homeland Security grant.
