On June 4, 2021 at approximately 1030 am, a Prescott Police Department Animal Control Officer responded to a home in the 700 block of Prescott Heights Drive reference complaints of barking dogs and strong odors of feces coming from the property.
The Animal Control Officer was invited into a portion of the home and observed a large amount of small breed dogs in the home. After having a conversation with the property owners, the owners advised that they were overwhelmed by the amount of dogs they had on the property and they wished to surrender a portion of the dogs.
Due to the large quantity of dogs on the property a request was made to the Prescott Valley Police Department Animal Control Unit and they immediately responded to assist as well as employees of the Yavapai Humane Society.
A total of sixty-two (62) small breed dogs were rescued from the property and transported to the Yavapai Humane Society where they will be placed up for adoption.
All of the dogs were found to be healthy at the time of rescue and there are no criminal charges pending in the matter.
We would like to thank the Prescott Valley Police Department and the Yavapai Humane Society for their assistance with this incident.
