Emergency Rescue in North Houston: 10 Emaciated Dogs, 9 Puppies, and a Kitten

(December 13, 2022)

Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigations team and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 conducted an emergency rescue for 10 emaciated dogs, nine puppies, and a kitten yesterday on Havner Lane in north Houston.

Several of the emaciated dogs were tethered by chains in the front yard of the property while the puppies, a kitten and remaining dogs were roaming free. All were lacking adequate food, water, or veterinary care.

Houston SPCA conducted an emergency rescue on this north Houston property.

All twenty animals were promptly removed from the property during the emergency rescue and are now receiving individualized medical treatment from Houston SPCA veterinary staff.

The owner could face up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine for animal cruelty.


The Houston SPCA’s 10-member animal cruelty investigations team works very closely with local law enforcement in and around the greater Houston area to stop cruelty including HPD, Harris County Constable Precinct 1, and nine other surrounding Texas counties. Report animal cruelty by calling 713.869.7722 or filing online.

The Houston SPCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that operates solely on donations. They are not affiliated with any other animal welfare organization, locally or nationally.
