Nearly 50 of the cats surrendered to Nye County Animal Control after living in substandard conditions at the FLOCK facility near Pahrump, Nev., will be hoping to meet new owners at the Pahrump Nugget Hotel and Casino today, August 11, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Staff from Best Friends Animal Society are bringing the friendliest, most adoptable of the more than 400 cats to the Pahrump Super Cat Adoption Event at the casino.
“It was like a dream come true when the management of the Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Casino generously offered to host an adoption event,” says Danielle Aymar, Best Friends adoption manager. “Our hope is that all of the cats we bring to the casino will be in their new homes Saturday night, purring on the couch or a soft bed.”
Aymar also extended thanks to all the volunteers and businesses from local areas that have helped care for the cats. “We at Best Friends have been deeply touched by the generosity of the people of Pahrump, North Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Henderson and other nearby towns, who have embraced our whole rescue operation,” she says. “Over the last couple of weeks some lucky cats have gone to wonderful families.”
Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Casino is located at 681 S. Highway 160, at the junction of State Routes 372 and 160. For more information about the adoption event, or to learn how to volunteer, visit the Best Friends website.
