Black Cat at FLOCK

Justice of the Peace Kent Jasperson June 11 dismissed the case against the cat sanctuary formerly located on Bond Street, called For the Love of Cats and Kittens, or FLOCK.

None of the 15 witnesses subpoenaed by the district attorney’s office had the opportunity to speak during the abbreviated hearing.

The case was lost by the state, at least for the time being, due to legal procedures and timing that attorney Tom Gibson, the corporate counsel for FLOCK, argued went beyond the statute of limitations.

Volunteers say justice not served

FLOCK Victim

Justice of the Peace Kent Jasperson’s small Pahrump courtroom was nearly filled to capacity last week with former FLOCK volunteers, Best Friends Animal Society volunteers and individual animal lovers.

Some of the volunteers traveled from neighboring states to testify in the case of the State vs. For the Love Of Cats and Kittens.

The volunteers had helped to rescue the 764 sickly, malnourished, disease-ridden cats found at the FLOCK cat sanctuary in July 2007.

Hope for the cats of the Great Kitty Rescue

Mr. Bettinger was hoping for a continuance as there is so much evidence yet to go through and more is coming in daily since the word has spread about the trial. Yesterday the judge denied the request saying the opposing attorney would have none of it.

We are hoping that Mr. Bettinger and his investigator Sharon Wehrly have managed to compile a solid case based on what they have compiled. The trial is set for 9 am tomorrow morning (Thursday, 02/11/10).

If you are interested in this case, I would appreciate hearing your experience, thoughts and feelings about the case in the comments section.

Best Friends caring for nearly 800 cats

Over two years ago, Animal Control in Nye County, Nevada, took control of some 800 cats in what has been described as a rescue effort that turned into an extreme case of animal hoarding. FLOCK (For the Love of Cats and Kittens), a registered 501c3 non-profit corporation, had kept the cats in deplorable conditions in their facility in Pahrump, Nevada.

Nye Country convinced FLOCK owners to surrender the cats and then turned their care over to Best Friends Animal Society. “The Great Kitty Rescue,” as Best Friends called it became the largest successful cat rescue in American history.
