Harford County Animal Control officers removed 39 cats from a woman's townhouse in Abingdon for "unsafe and unhealthy conditions," county government spokesman Bob Thomas confirmed Tuesday.

The cats were taken from the 500 block of Doefield Court between May 22 and this past weekend, Thomas said.

He did not have any more information on the woman who owned the cats or the conditions of the home where the cats were removed from

The cats were removed after a complaint was received by animal control, Thomas said.

No charges have been filed yet and the case is under investigation, Thomas said. No injuries were reported.

The county's hazmat team, the Harford County Health Department and the Abingdon Volunteer Fire Company assisted with the incident, Thomas said.
