Four cats ready for adoption after being seized from Rosamond area home

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Four cats were seized from a property in Rosamond in June and they are now available for adoption at Kern County Animal Services.

On June 27, Animal Control Officers rescued nearly 155 live cats and removed approximately 64 deceased cats from a home in the Rosamond area, according to director Shyanne Schull.

Schull said they arrested 42-year-old Christina Patz on 90 initial felony charges of cruelty to animals. Out of all of the cats rescued, only 15 were able to be put up for adoption. The remaining cats were extremely ill and had to be humanely euthanized, Schull said.

The four adoptable rescue cats have all been tested and cleared by a veterinarian to be adopted.

They are available for adoption at the special reduced fee of $5 during the Dog and Cat Days of Summer adoption promotion. Each cat will be spayed or neutered, have their first set of vaccinations, a microchip, flea treatment and dewormer.

To adopt any of these cats you can visit the Bakersfield shelter at 3951 Fruitvale Avenue or call (661) 868-7100.
