Three puppies have been rescued by the Houston SPCA in southeast Houston after a video catches a pet owner grabbing one of the puppies by his leg and pulling him through a gap in two fence boards before he beats him multiple times with a tree branch at a property near the Gulf Freeway and Bliss Street.
Another puppy was discovered with a partially embedded collar that could have led to a very serious injury and suffering. Ownership was relinquished to the Houston SPCA at the scene and they are now in the care of their veterinary staff.
“We rely on our community’s eyes and ears to report any degree of abuse because we know next time the abuse occurs, and it most likely will, there could be deadly consequences,” said Adam Reynolds, Chief of Animal Cruelty at the Houston SPCA.
