Houston SPCA rescues 12 dogs and macaw from deplorable conditions in Baytown

The Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigations team and the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office rescued 13 animals, including one macaw, who were living in deplorable conditions with no food, water, or veterinary care on FM 2354 in Baytown.

Officials found two deceased puppies on the property and a severely underweight macaw among the canines who are suffering from variety of skin issues, overgrown nails, and dental disease. All of the animals are now in the care of the Houston SPCA veterinary staff where they are receiving individualized medical treatment.

The owner could face up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine for animal cruelty. A hearing will be held in the coming weeks for a judge to rule on legal custody of the animals.

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.
