Lattanzio's goal isn't to keep all the cats for herself (though we wouldn't blame her if she did). The sanctuary is also an adoption center - where many, many cats (and a few dogs) are in need of forever homes. According to the sanctuary's website, over 24,000 cats have been saved. Another 40,000 cats and dogs have been spayed and neutered.
"I like cats because they are independent, they are beautiful, they are just graceful, and I enjoy watching them," Lattanzio told Barcroft TV. "I have taken in and lived with 28,000 cats. That's probably a record."
