SHAMOKIN — Nine dogs and three cats were removed Wednesday from a recreational vehicle in Shamokin, due to concerns for the animal’s welfare, according to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

The SPCA received a tip from a Shamokin police officer regarding animals living in an unoccupied recreational vehicle parked behind an apartment building, according to a statement released by the agency. Upon investigation, several animals could be seen through the RV’s windows and, upon entry, officers were overcome with a foul odor, requiring respirators.
