In response to The Humane Farming Association’s press release dated December 4, 2018, where it is alleged that Monterey County Animal Services had “full knowledge of animal dumping on the Salinas River.”
Monterey County Animal Services acknowledges that in November of 2016, a call was received regarding “multiple bodies dumped” in the riverbed near the Elm Street bridge in Greenfield. An officer was dispatched to discuss the situation with the reporting party. The next day, a body was delivered to the Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center for a necropsy. The necropsy, while suspicious, did not provide any definitive information to conclude it represented an animal cruelty case, or to lead to any suspects. Since that time, there have been zero reports or tips provided to this agency in regards to deceased animals, of any kind, being found at this location – or with regard to suspected animal cruelty at this location.

Helpful adviCe when looking for a lost pet
The following are tips for locating your cat or dog if the unthinkable happens:
- Search by car and on foot.
- Start searching immediately and don’t give up easily! Animals are found weeks, even months after they’re lost.
- Search small obscure spots in and around your home, even spaces you think are too small.
- Comb at least a 20-block area around your home.
- While searching, call out your pets name loudly and often. Shake a food or treat jar as you call out if that’s how you call them.
- Contact all animal shelters, animal control agencies, and veterinarians in your area immediately!
