Montgomery County Animal Control Seizes Over 100 Cats

October 11, 2019

On Wednesday October 2nd, 2019, Montgomery County Animal Control (“MCAC”) responded to a report of
animal neglect at a residence in New Caney, Texas. Upon arrival, the animal control officer found
numerous cats inside the home that was deemed unsafe for humans or pets to reside in. The officer also
found seven dogs on the property in various states of poor health.

A civil seizure warrant was obtained and was served by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department. As a
result, MCAC seized 107 live cats, 7 live dogs and 1 parakeet. The animals were transported to the
Montgomery County Animal Shelter (“MCAS”) for intake and veterinarian evaluations.

A hearing was held on October 9th, 2019 in the Justice of Peace Precinct 4 Court to determine custody of
the animals. All 107 cats and 7 dogs were awarded to the custody of the MCAS. As a result of this extreme
seizure, the numbers of cats at the MCAS has increased to 416 as of October 10th, 2019, well in excess of
the shelter’s capacity. The Montgomery County Animal Shelter staff will continue to care for these animals
along with the numerous intakes that come in on a daily basis. MCAS is requesting assistance from the
community, including in the form of volunteers, fosters or by citizens adopting available animals until a
final resolution is found for these seizure animals. Additional information will be forthcoming pending the
appeal process.
