The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office, Sutter Animal Services Authority, and the Sutter County District Attorney’s Office wants to express their appreciation for all the support that the community has provided.

The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office and the Sutter Animal Services Authority are asking that citizen email questions, concerns, or offers of assistance to the above email addresses. We also want to advise that while we appreciate the numerous offers to adopt confiscated animals, this is an active criminal investigation and all animals are currently considered evidence. Until the case has been adjudicated, the animals must stay in the case of the Sutter Animal Services Authority or whomever they appoint. We will continue to update the community on this case.

If anyone has any criminal investigative leads for this case, please e-mail Sutter County Sheriff’s Deputy Arbaugh at marbaugh[AT]co.sutter.ca.”
