Over 300 Abused Dogs Rescued in Nevada


This report is sickening. At the request of the Nye County Sheriff and Amargosa County near Las Vegas, NV, the ASPCA is providing much-needed assistance with the care of nearly 300 dogs – primarily Caucasian Shepherds including puppies and pregnant dogs, who were rescued from alleged cruelty in Pahrump, Nevada.

Animal cruelty charges have been filed based on evidence collected by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office. Criminal charges resulting from this case are being prosecuted by the Nye County District Attorney’s Office. The ASPCA is also providing investigative and legal assistance to further support the investigation and prosecution and to ensure the best legal outcome for these animals. Our response efforts have been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Alex & Elisabeth Lewyt Charitable Trust.
