This from reporter Beige Luciano-Adams:
In what they described as the second-largest seizure in the organization’s 108-year history, Pasadena Humane Society officials rescued nearly 150 cats and two dogs Wednesday night.
Most of animals lived on top of each other in a Pasadena residence in the 000 block of North Altadena Drive in a squalid metropolis of carrying crates.
“This is the most cats we’ve ever impounded – I’ve been here 13 years and never seen anything like this” said Steve McNall, Pasadena Humane Society president and CEO.
McNall said there were also several dead cats stored in a freezer. Another nine cats and two dogs were taken from a home in the 9800 block of Olive Street in Temple City, officials said.
Officials cited Tanya Regan, 62, of Temple City. She was released on her own recognizance, McNall said.
Beige tells me she could smell the Altadena Drive house from several hundred feet away…
