RENO, NV - The Nevada Humane Society is in desperate need of cat lovers after two sisters were arrested Tuesday for negligent care of 44 cats discovered in their Spanish Springs home.
The Washoe County Regional Animal Services rescued 44 cats, far exceeding the legal limit of seven allowed, and four dogs from a home on Chula Vista Drive.
The discovery led to the arrest of Jacqueline Haney, 72, and Lauretta Nawojski, 71, for animal cruelty and resisting arrest.
The cats reportedly needed emergency care according to WCRAS that were found to have respiratory and eye problems.
The NHS is asking for help to find these loving and abused animals homes. Their ages range from four months to 14 years says Denise Stevens of NHS.
