March 2, 2022, Diamond Bar, CA – Early this week, the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. (IVHS) was notified of a possible hoarding situation on the 1100 Block of Flintlock in Diamond Bar.
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 1, 2022, IVHS responded to a call from a neighbor concerned about the living conditions and the potential large number of animals at a nearby residence. Upon arrival, investigators met with the resident and determined they were over limits for the maximum number of animals allowed in the home. City officials and law enforcement arrived at the scene for assessment and the resident was transported by EMS to a local hospital for treatment.
Our team of Humane Officers gained access to the home where they were immediately overwhelmed by the condition and odor. IVHS staff was able to successfully remove over 80 animals including dogs and cats. Multiple deceased cats were also discovered in the home. All animals were taken back to IVHS for assessment and treatment by our veterinary team and will continue to remain in our care for the duration of the case.
Cruelty investigations and ongoing support of neglected animals like these are made possible by generous donors in our community and beyond. If you would like to donate to IVHS to support the much needed care and medical attention for these cats and kittens, click the Donate Button.DONATE
The Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA would like to remind everyone to always report abuse or animal neglect if they see it, to us or their local Animal Control Service/Shelter.
