Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigation team and Harris County Constables Precinct 1 rescued 50 urine-soaked and feces-matted dogs, including a newborn puppy from a property near E. 25th Street by Loop 610. The animals were living in deplorable conditions as the home was filled with debris, feces, and a heavy smell of ammonia.
The emergency warrant from Harris County Constable Precinct 1 allowed the Houston SPCA to get onto the property to rescue the animals where they are now in the care of the rescue and protection organization’s veterinary staff for individualized treatment including cruelty exams, vaccinations, de-matting, a nutrition plan, and more. A hearing will be scheduled for this case sometime next week.
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.
