Trial has been postponed amid talk about a plea deal involving a former animal control supervisor accused of illegally killing dogs at the Boulder City shelter.
Court records show that prosecutors and Mary Jo Frazier's attorney decided Tuesday they'll meet again Oct. 4 with a Clark County District Court judge.
Trial had been scheduled next week.
Frazier pleaded not guilty in March to two felony animal cruelty charges that could get her up to eight years in prison.
She retired and moved to Oregon shortly after a police probe concluded that more than 90 animals had been euthanized in one year without a required five-day waiting period and veterinary exam.
The police chief who decided not to seek charges against Frazier resigned after Boulder City officials asked the district attorney to prosecute Frazier.

The Image Comics co-founder talked about the upcoming reboot centered on the antihero for an episode of AMC's Geeking Out, which ComicBook.com was first to preview.
McFarlane was asked straight up if fans were going to get another, better movie following the 1997 film which starred Michael Jai White, John Leguizamo and Martin Sheen.
"The simple answer is yes," McFarlane replied, who has spoken about the possibility over the years. "It's not going to be a continuation. It's not going to be a sequel. Scrub the first movie."
That should be welcome news to fans who were severely underwhelmed by the PG-13 film 20 years ago, which was not reflective of the dark, violent, brutal world captured in the comic and short-lived HBO animated series.
"It's going to be a dark, R-rated, scary, badass sort of script. It's not a nice, polite PG-13," McFarlane insisted. The 1997 version was lacking in all those departments in order for the film to have a softer rating, likely done to help it at the box office. (It grossed just $54 million against a $40 million budget.)
McFarlane also said the reboot would utilize more practical effects; the first film was saturated with CGI in almost every frame, which barley held up then.
