Houston SPCA Rescues 60 Dogs From Brazoria County Living in Feces and Urine

(June 5, 2023)

A team of Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigators headed to Brazoria County on Thursday to rescue 60 dogs, many living in filthy wire crates filled with their own urine and feces inside a home in Manvel, Texas.

Officials at the scene said there were dozens of wire kennels stacked throughout the home where 60 dogs were being neglected, as well as one dog found deceased in the home. There were highly toxic ammonia levels present in the home, according to officials.

The owner signed custody of all the animals over to the Houston SPCA before they were removed from the property. All 60 dogs have been brought to the Houston SPCA where they will have a chance to settle in before they receive individualized treatment and care by their veterinary and animal care staff.

The Houston SPCA’s 10-member animal cruelty investigations team work closely with local law enforcement including HPD, Harris County Constable Precinct 1 and nine other surrounding counties to help end animal cruelty.


Since 1924, the Houston SPCA has been the leading private, nonprofit animal welfare organization in the greater Houston region. We are one of the only organizations in the country able to care for animals of all kinds in one location. Looking for more ways to give? Check here for how to support animals in need.
