More than 100 animals seized from a Newport business will be arriving at the Oregon Humane Society tonight at approximately 6 pm. The animals include 11 puppies, 31 birds, 92 mice and rats, seven gerbils and chinchillas, and 28 reptiles. The animals were seized as part of a search warrant served by OHS Humane Officers on Circus World Pets, located on SW Coast Highway in Newport. The business has been the subject of numerous complaints and an ongoing animal neglect investigation since April.
A special thanks to the Oregon Coast Aquarium who helped by taking in over 400 salt and fresh water fish from this case.
OHS Humane Officers are commissioned by the Governor of Oregon to investigate animal cruelty crimes anywhere in the state. Last year, more than 500 animals were seized by OHS officers or surrendered to them as a result of investigations into neglect and abuse allegations. Members of the public who see any animal they believe is not receiving proper care can contact the OHS Investigations Department, (503) 285-7722, ext. 214, or use the OHS online animal cruelty complaint form.
