TUCSON – Pima Animal Care Center took in 57 cats and a dog involved in a hoarding case, the shelter said Friday.
According to the shelter, officers called PACC late Thursday night to assist with the removal of dozens of cats in a home near Valencia and Houghton roads.
Tucson Police Department is investigating the incident.
PACC says “the conditions inside the home were poor, with animal waste and trash all over the floor. Litterboxes were full of waste. There was no visible water left out for the pets. The home also had no electricity. The dog was in the backyard. There was no water for him in the area.”
