BOULDER CITY, Nev. (KLAS) — 46 cats and two dogs were recovered from a mobile home over the past week. The animals were taken to the Boulder City Animal Shelter, where they are being checked out and cared for.
Officials say an A/C unit was being replaced in the mobile home. When it was taken out, they say cats “came pouring out” of the opening.
The animals are in various stages of recovery. Animal control officials say the three dogs were in good condition, six cats could be available for adoption this week and another 12 could be up for adoption soon.
Most of the cats are feral or semi-feral. The animal control supervisor is working with rescue organizations to spay and neuter the pets.
City officials have not released the location of the home or name of the owner at this time. They say the owner is cooperating at this time.
