Animal Control Removes 46 Pets from Home
The Boulder City Animal Control recovered 43 cats and three dogs from a local mobile home over the last week. City officials have not released the location of the home or the owner’s identity at this time.
The animals were taken to the Boulder City Animal Shelter, where they are being evaluated and cared for. “This week has been especially difficult for staff,” said Boulder City Police Chief Tim Shea. “There is an ongoing investigation surrounding the circumstances leading to this unfortunate incident.”
A number of animals are in various stages of recovery thanks to the efforts of our staff. “Three dogs were sent to a breed-specific rescue in good condition,” said Animal Control Supervisor Ann Inabnitt. “Six cats could be available for adoption this week, and about 12 others could be adoptable soon.”
The majority of cats taken are feral or semi-feral. Animal Control Supervisor Inabnitt is working with rescue organizations and spay/neuter/health clinics around the Valley to help the pets. “Ann has established Boulder City Animal Shelter as a trusted animal welfare agency,” said Al Noyola, City Manager of Boulder City.
