DETAILS:

On September 21, 2022, the Josephine County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at the business location for Pawsitive K9 Solutions located on 6th Street in Grants Pass. During that warrant, thirteen neglected dogs were located that had no food or water in poor living conditions. 

On September 26, 2022 Detectives with the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office, Animal Control Officer’s and Josephine County Code Enforcement executed an additional search warrant at the owner’s residence, located in Selma.

All animals located in both search warrants were seized and aid was rendered to the animals as needed.

At the residence a small illegal marijuana grow with hundreds of pounds of processed marijuana was located. Evidence was collected regarding the growing operation as well. 

Based on the investigation, it is believed that the suspects for this case have fled the area. The Josephine County Sheriff’s Office is determined to locate the individuals and hold them responsible for all crimes involved. 

Individuals who may have knowledge of the suspects or have any knowledge regarding their business are encouraged to contact Detectives with the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office at 541-474-5123.

INCIDENT DATE AND TIME: September 21st, 2022, at 5:56 PM           

CASE NUMBER: 22002115 

REPORTING DEPUTY: Lieutenant Geiger

DETAILS:      

Josephine County Animal Control Officers received a report of malnourished canines at Pawsitive K9 Solutions, located at 783 SE 6th Street Grants Pass, Oregon. Deputies with the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office obtained and served a search warrant at the location on September 21st, 2022. Deputies and Animal Control Officers recovered 13 canines all at different levels of malnourishment. Some of the canines required immediate care from veterinarians who helped after hours to see them in a timely manner. The living conditions of the animals revealed they had been neglected for some time. The canines were transported to the Josephine County Animal Shelter.

The owners/employees of the business were not present at the time of the search warrant, but they have been identified.

As of September 23, 2022, the canines are doing well and are getting the care they need at the Shelter.  The Shelter has stated that they are on special and expensive prescription diets at this time and donations are always appreciated.  If you would like to help with their care and donate, the Shelter specifically asked for hoses, bleach, laundry detergent, and nitrile exam gloves but always welcomes any donations. 

This case will be forwarded to the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office for review.
