Redmond Police Seek Person(s) Responsible for Abandoning 15 Cats at Paul Hathaway Park -- Assistance from the Public Requested (Photo) - 03/28/23

Redmond, Oregon - On March 27, 2023, at approximately 8:00 a.m., Redmond officers responded to Paul Hathaway Park, 1021 NW Rockcrest Ct., where 15 cats (10 adults and 5 kittens) had been left in totes and abandoned near the canyon edge.  The cats smelled of urine and feces and didn’t have access to food or water.  Also located was a suitcase with cat food inside.  The cats were taken to Brightside Animal Shelter in Redmond, where they were evaluated, treated, and vaccinated by veterinary staff.    

The Redmond Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the person(s) responsible for abandoning these cats. If you know who the animals, totes, or luggage bag belongs to please notify the Police by calling the non-emergency number at 541-693-6911.  Reference RPD case #23-8507.   

We would also like to thank the juvenile who reported the abandoned cats and Brightside Animal Shelter for evaluating and treating the cats.  

As a reminder, it is against the law, ORS 167.340 Animal Abandonment, to abandon a domestic animal or equine at a location without providing minimum care. It is also against the law, ORS 167.325 Animal Neglect, to fail to provide minimum care for an animal in a person’s custody/control.   

If you no longer wish to keep your cat or other domestic animal, please call your local animal shelter.  They will provide guidance and help you make the best decision for your animal(s).
