NEVADA -- A Nevada woman living with 20 large dogs, 35 Chihuahuas, 15 cats and two horse has been arrested for animal cruelty.

Brenna Lise England (aka Brenna Colburn, Brenna Colburn-England), 38, faces one charge of animal cruelty after officers found her animals living in 'deplorable conditions of filth and trash' at her Pahrump home in Nevada.

Officers also found the remains of a dead kitten in the backyard of the property on the 1500 block of Heritage Drive, News 3LV reports.


The surviving animals have been rescued and are now being cared for in another facility.

'The animals on the property were not being provided with adequate shelter, food or water,' the Nye County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. 'The animals were living in deplorable conditions of filth and trash.'

England is being held at the Nye County Detention Center on $1,001 cash-only bail.

SUSPECT:
England, Brenna Lise, 38, Pahrump
CHARGES:
NRS 574.100 Animal Cruelty
DETAILS:
PAHRUMP - On Wednesday, June 28, 2017, Nye County Sheriff's deputies arrived at a residence on the 1500 block of Heritage Drive to assist the Nye County Public Administrator in securing a residence.

When deputies and the public administrator arrived, they made contact with Brenna Lise England, 38, who was residing on the property.

During the process of securing the property, the public administrator and the deputies noticed approximately 20 large dogs of different breeds, 35 Chihuahuas, 15 cats and two horses.


The animals on the property were not being provided with adequate shelter, food or water. The animals were living in deplorable conditions of filth and trash. Deputies observed at least one deceased kitten decomposing in the back yard. Deputies ran a record check on Breanna England, who returned with an arrest warrant.

England was arrested on a Pahrump Justice Court warrant and transported to Nye County Detention Center. The animal cruelty case is still under investigation and in the preliminary stages, and charges are pending.

The animals are currently being relocated to a facility that can provide adequate care. England remains in custody on $1,001 cash only bail.


Although they say the residence is in the "1500 block of Heritage Drive Pahrump NV", Breanna Colburn's address returns as 1920 Heritage Dr, Pahrump, NV 89048. When I checked Google Maps, this address is the one shown in the Daily Mail article as well.

  1. Its no surprise to me that she is charged for not taking care of the animals, because she didn't even take care of her children I was the one who cared for them when I lived across the street from her... She deserves to be where she is at and maybe she will change the way she is.
