The owner of Paw Angels Animal Rescue will not be charged after the City seized 35 animals.

Robert Sudbury was in municipal court Friday morning.

Sudbury reached a settlement with the City of Abilene.

He also agreed to surrender two more cats -- Archey and Ozzy -- the City said were "cruelly treated."

In exchange, Sudbury will not have to pay any costs associated with the care of the cats.

On Monday, animal control seized 31 cats and two dogs.

The investigation began Sept. 23 after a neighbor complained about the noise and smell coming from Paw Angel Animal Rescue which operates out of a home in the 1500 block of Park Ave.

The City said there were approximately 70-80 dogs in the backyard at the time, along with 5-10 cats.

They called living conditions “poor at best.”

Sudbury told the City that the COVID-19 pandemic impacted his ability to do adoption events.

After Monday's seizure, PetSmart said Sudbury could no longer hold adoption events there.
