RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Washoe County Regional Animal Services has now captured more than 40 dogs from the Sun Valley Regional Park.

The County is trying to find out who abandoned the animals at the park over the last two weeks.

On Friday animal services had impounded at least 27 dogs including some found in the Red Rock area.

They believe these dogs were likely abandoned by the same person, or people.

“Just cause the dogs are all very similar in their color, their coat patterns, their size, they all look like they could be related a little bit,” said Tammy Jennings with Washoe County Regional Animal Services.

If you know anything that can help animal services find the person responsible for abandoning the dogs, call them at 775-322-3647 or email

Some of the dogs have already been adopted and others are still available for adoption through the Nevada Humane Society.
