Five puppies found dead in Houston backyard

Eight puppies and their mother went into various stages of heat distress after being left outside in a west Houston backyard near Clay Road. Five puppies were found dead while the three remaining and their mother were rushed back to the Houston SPCA’s Animal Medical Center by animal cruelty investigators. a

Law enforcement partners Harris County Constable Precinct 1 obtained an exigent warrant that allow them onto the property to rescue the remaining dogs. One of the three puppies is currently in guarded condition at the Houston SPCA under veterinary care.

“Leaving your pet to fend for itself is animal cruelty, against state law and can quickly lead to
deadly consequences with this blistering heat if you don’t check on your outdoor pets regularly,”
said Adam Reynolds, Chief of Animal Cruelty at the Houston SPCA.

To report animal cruelty or an animal in distress, please call 713-869-SPCA (7722) or file a
report online.
