News ImageNovember 17, 2017  Mountain Lion Cub SavedOn Thursday, November 9, animal control officer Kaiser responded to a call in Silverado regarding a bob cat stuck in someone's backyard and unable to get out. Upon arrival, Kaiser discovered the animal was not a bob cat, but a mountain lion cub. Lt. Morgan and Lt. Evans responded to assist Kaiser with the situation. Together they transported the cub to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for evaluation. There, the cub was deemed too young to be released back into the wild. And per call history, a deceased female mountain lion that had been struck by a vehicle was recently impounded. Due to the high possibility of the cub being an orphan, the licensed wildlife rehabilitator reached out to a zoo who are gladly adopting the cub to give it the necessary care it needs. Thanks ACO Kaiser, Lt. Morgan and Lt. Evans for all the hard work and dedication to helping animals.

News ImageNovember 7, 2017  67 Dogs and Cats find Homes During So Much Left to Give Adoption Event!67 shelter pets were adopted during our So Much Left to Give event that offered *free dog and cat adoptions (not including licensing, microchip, leash or carrier). 36 cats and 31 dogs found the loving families they have been waiting for. Staff hosted a licensing table and helped inform/direct the public on how to protect your pet with proper identification. Volunteers hosted an information booth and event goers were in for a special treat when they received a Buddy Crate, which was donated to whomever adopted a shelter dog. It was an exciting and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Special thank you to Supervisor Shawn Nelson's office for sponsoring and attending this wonderful event that helped so many animals find their fur-ever homes!
