We have an update on an animal cruelty case out of Sparks we first told you about last month.
Back on in mid-June Washoe County Deputies arrested 63-year-old Ronnie Bandoni and charged him with four counts of animal cruelty.
Deputies say he had dozens of dead animals in his home on Merchant Street in Sparks along with more than 40 living rabbits, more than 50 cats and kittens and six dogs.
The surviving animals were taken to the Nevada Humane Society which has to absort the cost of caring for them.
"It actually cost us about $250 to cover the initial cost of these animals when they come in the door, so when you do the math that's a lot of funding right up front that we are putting up to care for these animals," says Kimberly Chandler.
The Humane Society says all the animals have been spayed or neutered and microchipped. They're asking the public to come down and consider adopting one this weekend or donate to help care for them.
The Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. The shelter is open Sunday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm.
