CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Dog Dumped in Southeast Houston

(February 14, 2024)

The Houston SPCA and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 are jointly investigating a distressing case of animal cruelty following the emergence of a video capturing the abandonment of a young dog near the 5000 block of Groveton Street, close to Jutland Road in South Acres last week. The footage depicts the dog desperately chasing the van as it drives away after being left behind by its owner. This callous act has rendered the dog vulnerable to potential animal attacks and starvation. Currently, the dog is receiving care under the Houston SPCA’s supervision while the investigation unfolds.

Under state law, abandoning an animal constitutes a felony punishable by a $10,000 fine and a potential two-year prison sentence. The Houston SPCA urges pet owners to explore alternative options, such as contacting local animal shelters, rescue organizations, neighbors, or friends, rather than resorting to such heartless actions.

The Houston SPCA wants to encourage animal owners to contact local shelters, rescues, neighbors, or friends rather than commit a heartless crime like this one.


The Houston SPCA’s 11-member animal cruelty investigations team rescues victims of animal cruelty across nine counties, including Harris County. Report animal cruelty by calling 713.869.7722 or online at www.houstonspca.org.
